Use of tractors and other mechanized farming equipment can triple productivity, so PMA expects farmers’ income to increase significantly. Furthermore, using higher-quality inputs and growing crops in larger quantities will help farmers sell their crops for higher prices.
Training will include education about planting foods in personal gardens that lead to a healthy and balanced diet, which will address malnutrition rates among participating families. These families will also be able to purchase other foods that they cannot grow with their increased income.
With additional income coming into households, community members have the ability to pursue other entrepreneurial endeavors that will contribute positively to economic and social growth, e.g., beekeeping, fish ponds, livestock, clean water distribution, etc.
We train farmers on proper soil management to reduce soil erosion and nutrient depletion, helping to promote regenerative farming practices and improve climate resilience in rural Uganda.
We focus on training and supporting women farmers, which will have a positive impact on their income, education, and training.
