Our programs in agriculture, food security and climate change adaptation break the cycle of poverty for rural communities who depend on farming for their livelihood.

In Uganda, we help farming families get more out of the agricultural value chain. Our programs help farmers learn better ways to grow, process and store cash crops — especially coffee and beans — and, ultimately, increase the quantity and quality of their harvest. We partner with community groups to help them preserve and manage their natural resources in ways that improve their crop production. And we support farmer organizations to strengthen their technical and organizational capacities so that they can provide sustainable, equitable and quality services to their members.

We also prepare young farmers for future careers in agriculture and related businesses so they are able to change the trajectory of their life and the future of their communities.

COUNTRY PROJECTS
Resilience Support to Sustain Livelihoods of Refugees in Uganda

Lutheran World Relief supports South Sudanese and Congolese refugees and host communities in and around Palabek and Kyaka II refugee settlements in Uganda. We help families grow vegetables, such as beans, cowpeas, orange sweet potatoes and okra, for household consumption. Also, given the high market demand for okra, we assist refugees and local farmers organizing into farmer associations focused on the collective production and sale of okra. Through this project, families' diets are improving, and they are able to purchase necessities, such as soap and medication with the additional income from okra sales.
