Northern Uganda has a huge potential for agriculture and was the former food basket of the region. During the insurgence of Lords´ Resistance Army people were forced into camps and lost everything they had. They have since returned to their land and many are interested to rebuild and to improve their farms. As a social enterprise we support individual farmers in all aspects of their farm activities: agro-imputs, mechanization services, credit facility, extension work and advice, marketing and trade. Linking research with the daily practice of smallholders plays an important role in our approach.
