Our work in Uganda

Uganda is a landlocked and fertile country with many lakes and rivers. Some 75% of the population live in rural areas and rely on agriculture for their livelihoods.

Almost half of the rural population live in poverty without reliable access to income as despite Uganda’s good soil and favorable weather, there are many barriers preventing poor farmers making the most of the country’s growing economy.

Our projects in Uganda offer a wide range of support. From helping coffee farmers in the western region to engage with markets, to enabling small-scale chilli growers in the northern region to capitalize on the sector’s huge market demand, to supporting pastoralist women set up sustainable goat-rearing enterprises.

We help farmers find 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.

Our activities aim to create a resilient rural Ugandan population by increasing access to farming inputs, finance, markets, and extension services. Our work serves the rural poor and enables them to fully participate in the social, cultural, and economic development of their communities.

We also support rural communities so they can have more of a voice in shaping the policies that affect their lives.
