Kicking poverty out of northern Uganda
Seeds for Development works with very poor farming communities in northern Uganda
We listen to, and learn from, the farmers ensuring that we support them with what they need and not what we think they should have.
Through education, empowerment and farming, we help people rebuild their lives, and develop resilient, self-sustainable communities, after a 20 year war that raged between the rebel Lord's Resistance Army and Ugandan Government Forces. Up to two million people spent many years living in camps for internally displaced people. We support six communities in northern Uganda helping them move towards a happier and more hopeful life where they eat regular meals, send their children to school, build new and safer homes and set up businesses.
100% of donations go to Uganda to support our projects.
CORONAVIRUS IN UGANDA
Coronavirus is in Uganda and, whilst the cases are far below those in other countries the impact has been severe.
Food security and income generation remains very challenging and we have handed out emergency food to many people.
Vaccination levels are very low but we are starting to hear of people in the villages being vaccinated.
Schools were shut from March 2020 until January 2022. They reopened on January 10th.
