Grace Abounding Appeal: Make your tax-deductible gift before June 30

Give now

As many young people in this area were born and grew up in IDP or refugee camps, they haven’t had the chance to learn and develop good agricultural skills and knowledge. Cattle raiding and the resurgence of the Lord’s Resistance Army meant that families no longer have access to the cattle they depend on for much of the labour of subsistence farming. Climate change, specifically drought, has also increased vulnerability. In drought seasons – and the last five years have been beset by drought – it is common for local communities to experience almost 100% yield loss of their crops.

The Kitgum Sustainable Livelihoods project uses the Farming God’s Way agricultural method to train farmers in:

  • Sustainable agronomic methodology
  • Soil and water conservation techniques
  • Disaster response strategies
  • Climate change adaption and mitigation strategies
  • Post harvest handling and marketing techniques.

Anglican Aid is also supporting the installation of rain water harvest facilities, the setting up of Village Saving and Loan Associations (VSLA), and training and mentoring for small livestock enterprises.
