emerge poverty free


Project Female Vegetable Farmers


In Uganda, women often receive little to no formal education and are unlikely to find employment.

Despite their lack of skills, they are still primarily responsible for the farming in their households.Without adequate knowledge or practical experience, the women often produce poor crop yields which can result in poverty and hunger for their families.

emerge poverty free has partnered with the Anasi Farmers Association on a project to train female farmers in vegetable growing, soil conservation, and marketing. These skills will enable the women to use vegetable growing as a means of generating income, in addition to creating a sustainable farming environment within the community.
