Agriculture & Livelihood Program
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, global efforts to ending world hunger and malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 was not on track. The pandemic has made this goal significantly more challenging.
The number of people in the world affected by hunger continued to increase in 2020 under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is estimated that between 720 & 811 million people in the world faced hunger in 2020 (2021, The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (FAO-ROME,2021).
In December 2020, World Food Program announced a further 40% cut in food rations given to over 1.4 million refugees in Uganda due to funding shortfalls.
Without any significant investments to support refugees establish sustainable sources of food and income, the situation could become dire with increased cases of malnutrition and stunting among children.
Voice For Humanity Uganda implement projects that enhance food security and improve incomes and nutrition among the poorest conflict-affected households.
We provide the necessary training on good agronomic practices while providing the needed tools, capital and start-ups in Agribusiness enterprises that meet the nutritional and food needs of the local communities.
We support out of school youths who acquire non-formal vocational skills and start-up capital/kits for self-employment and income generation.
