Kicking poverty out of Northern Uganda through

education, empowerment & farming


Coronavirus has arrived in Uganda and as of today April 1st 2020 there are 44 recorded cases - we are taking data from the Ugandan Ministry of Health.

The country is practically locked down with shops shut (except for food), public transport halted and gatherings banned.

Our beneficiaries are in very remote villages and challenged in different ways to those living in towns.

We have responded by buying and distributing soap to all of them - more than 1,200 in 8 locations.

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.

Seeds for Development Trustees Alison Hall and Penny Peters hand out seeds

Farmers receive seeds for an acre of land.

This means they can move away from subsistence farming and generate income for their families.
