Making a difference in Uganda

Our work in Uganda is a clear example of how we are enriching lives and laying down a foundation of sustainability in farming that will have a ripple effect through generations to follow.

Since 2013, we’ve invested over $1 million in a pioneering project in Hoima that aims to improve the livelihoods of farmers by helping them to transition from subsidence farming to sustainable commercial level farming.

We've set up a model pig farm in Hoima that now employs over 20 people and have trained over 300 local farmers in the basics of animal nutrition and livestock management.
