The Agriculture Program empowers families in Uganda with income & food security.
Our women live in rural villages where they rely heavily on farming to provide for their families. However, traditional farming methods and inconsistent rainfall can lead to unpredictable harvests. Through our Farming, Chicken, Pig, Banana, & Vegetable Projects, the women learn how to maintain small businesses that diversify their income through agriculture and increase their food supply.
In 2020, these 5 projects empowered over 60 women in Uganda.
Food Security & Income
When the Agriculture Program began in 2015, we started using the curriculum of Farming God's Way, and in our first season, the women harvested 5-10 times more crops than when using traditional methods. Since then, we have added additional projects to help diversify the women's income and increase their food supply further.
Our animal projects teach the women how to raise chickens and pigs as small businesses, significantly increasing their income. Through our crop projects, we have improved food security for families while also providing additional sources of income. Together, these projects provide more opportunities to our women and their families!
