Over the past years the number of people living in extreme poverty has declined dramatically, despite the lasting impact of the post-Uganda turbulent times and now Corvid 19 impact.
According to reports Uganda has rich, fertile soil and ample rainfall, and 82 percent of Uganda’s population work in agriculture. Despite these factors, which should lead to a surplus of food, Uganda still struggles with widespread hunger. This small country has a fast-growing population that is expected to reach 100 million by 2050.
The effects of the corvid 19 pandemic have only worsened the situation with more families going without food.
The Abra food basket program is intended to ensure the disadvantaged not only be fed but many homes with be trained on how to participate in sustainable Agriculture for both home consumption and commercial purposes sustainably.
Our approach to resolving the food basket is one family at a time.
Studies indicate 41% of people live in poverty, and almost half of Uganda’s population is under the age of 15, representing one of the youngest populations in the world. Uganda also hosts the largest refugee population in Africa—more than one million refugees have fled their home countries to seek asylum in Uganda. Over the next decade, agricultural development will be a main priority to help improve outcomes for low-income families. Agriculture will also be an increasingly important industry for youth and refugees to find viable opportunities to earn sustainable livelihoods for themselves.
