“The science is clear, our planet is in danger. Anytime you restore land, you actually have it as a carbon sink. And it turns out that land is the largest carbon carbon sink that we have right now on Earth.”
–Ibrahim Thiaw, United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
Thank you for working with us to make a difference in a perilous situation! Together we are sustaining and improving Ugandan soil to better shelter and feed our people!
When Africa’s female farmers thrive, everyone benefits. When these women succeed, they invest in their children’s nutrition and education, into their local communities, and they invest in their economies! With focus upon the right investments and policies, Africa’s woman-run farms will produce a bumper crop of development. Thank you for being a big part of our ongoing efforts to support Ugandan women SO THEY CAN THRIVE!
This year we are empowering rural craftswomen in Uganda through social entrepreneurship and inclusive innovation. By investing and partnering with these artisans, we are now creating an income stream so these women can provide essential needs for their children! We are providing employment and vocational training in artisan crafts for over 60 women in northern Uganda, where poverty is extreme and opportunities are few. By creating these opportunities to earn income for their families, these women are now able to pay for their children’s school fees, provide adequate nutrition, and keep their families together. The benefits of providing training for women ripple through their communities, providing positive changes that support future generations.
