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.

Farmers receive seeds for an acre of land.

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

Coronavirus is in Uganda and as of April 25th there are 41,737 recorded cases and 341 deaths.   We are taking data from the Ugandan Ministry of Health, or their Twitter account, which is updated more frequently.

 

Our beneficiaries are in very remote villages and challenged in different ways to those living in towns - see our Coronavirus page for details and how we are helping them.
