More than $1 TRILLION—equating to about HALF the present GDP of the UK—has been dispatched to the African continent in Aid over the past 5 decades, alongside Africa’s own riches. Yet, MILLIONS of Africans today remain confined in Hunger & Extreme Poverty.
The Uganda Community Farm, a nonprofit agribusiness initiative, aims to build a new paradigm for Uganda’s Rural Poor to work and act for themselves out of Hunger & Poverty—in a self sustaining manner. We will do this by 1) equipping rural smallholder farmers with hands-on skills on organic horticulture systems, and 2) enabling the poor farmers access ‘High Value Agrarian Markets’ for their produce through Collective Marketing. Our goal is to set a precedent for Africa’s Rural Poor to take a lead on their own exit from Hunger & Extreme Poverty. Learn about our wider vision here.
Originally intended to create self sustainability in scaling our Current Conservation Activities in Uganda’s heavily deforested countryside, the farm contemporarily aims to bring together and equip our target rural smallholder farming communities to work & act for themselves out of poverty (in a self help fashion), giving them the training and skills to grow & market their own food through sustainable & regenerative practices.
