We grow various crops ourselves at the UCF. We then get many fellow poor farmers to do the same, by providing them with inputs, and the needed agronomic training. Lastly, we build market links for our collective produce. That’s what guides our work.
Our goal is to equip the rural poor in the remotest areas of eastern Uganda with the knowledge and skills to lift themselves from poverty in a self-sustaining way. We do this by providing poor smallholder farmers with training on specific crops; providing them with initial inputs, and by building market linkages for our collective produce.
