In Uganda, 86% of the population live in rural areas and rely on subsistence agriculture. But more than half live in poverty without reliable access to food.
This is because, despite Uganda’s good soil and favourable weather, there are many barriers preventing poor farmers making the most of the country’s growing economy.
With Farm Africa's support, rural Ugandans are increasing the value of their harvests through better farming practices and simple processing of surplus produce. They're finding ways of earning a living that are suited to their natural environment, so they can improve their lives without damaging the natural resources they rely on.
