Uganda Community Farm
Key(s): Access to Food and Water, Economic Empowerment
The Uganda Community Farm is a community agriculture project that aims to equip Uganda’s rural poor with the knowledge & skills to lift themselves from extreme poverty in a self sufficient way.
Our approach is twofold, provide rural poor farmers with initial ginger rhizomes along with sufficient organic fertilizers and technical training on ginger growing and pool together these farmers’ ginger produce and market it under a single umbrella. This gives the small farmers an opportunity to have a combined production that can attract larger buyers—such as wholesale grocers and bottling companies—enabling the farmers to get better prices and high-value markets that they couldn’t access before.
