Improved Vegetable Seedlings | Uganda

In March Planet Changer purchased organic vegetable seedlings that were distributed to multiple small-holder farms. These seedlings were an improved variety that can better withstand drought and insects.

Spring is the most favorable season in Uganda for planting vegetables. These seedlings have thus far been highly successful. The plants are growing and producing well. The lives of the farmers have already begun to improve.

“the first round of vegetable seeds that we distributed to the grass root farmers are doing well and  the beneficiaries are full of joy and praise of planet changer help, because with these vegetables, they are affording to meet the nutritional needs of their families in addition to getting some small money through the sell of these vegetables.   since then, many farmers have appealed to me to give them more vegetable seeds and i have been telling them that i tabled their request to planet changer. in the first round, hundreds of farmers in each region were left out as the first round could not purchase enough seeds to cover all of them. In the second round, am proposing that thousand of farmers can be covered.” ~Moses Wiseman, Ugandan Farmer and Planet Project Coordinator

Dairy Goat Program | Uganda

Planet Changer is excited to announce our newest project to eradicate hunger – establishing a dairy goat breeding program in Uganda!

Many Ugandan families live on less than $1 a day. Raising and caring for dairy goats brings immediate and positive change to these families.  The level of nutrition in their home increases significantly. Surplus milk can be sold at market,  a high demand for goat milk already exists. A revenue stream is created allowing farmers to send their children to school and improve their farming techniques to increase their yields. This impacts entire communities as they are empowered to begin to raise themselves out of abject poverty.

To ensure program sustainability, Planet Changer is securing land to establish a goat breeding and training center. Farmers will receive training in how to properly care for the dairy goats by a local goat breeding specialist. Upon completion of training and proper preparation to care for the goats, the farmers will receive a goat. When the goat reaches maturity the goat will be bred and the offspring will be given to another farmer who attends training. This goat will also be bred with its offspring given to a new family, and the cycle will continue. With this model, Planet Changer increases our breeding capabilities and farmers actively assist each other. Long term, this program will benefit thousands of grassroots farmers across hundreds of communities.

“Once again thank you for your initiatives with us. we appreciate your efforts … am committed like always to for ever work with you in eradicating hunger and poverty in grass root communities in Uganda and Africa. farmers here are excited and are looking forward for your programs to start being implemented.” -A note from Moses, a Ugandan farmer who is working closely with Planet Changer

The start up cost of the goat breeding program is $16,000. Planet Changer invites you to partner with us to to save lives in Uganda and help farmers create positive futures for their families and communities.

100% of all public donations will go to the project or fund that the donor designates (minus transaction cost, if applicable).

Small-holder Farmer Support | Uganda

Planet Changer is partnering with a cooperative of 1000 farmers in over 100 grass-roots communities to enhance their capacity to improve crop quality and quantity as well as increase their efficiency in accessing markets. Small-holder farming is the major economic activity for over 80% of the Ugandan population. Most of the farmers live in rural areas that are characterized by endemic poverty.

First steps include providing improved seedling varieties and drip irrigation systems to increase produce and empower them to fight hunger in their communities. Improved fertilizer and a co-op shared tractor are included in future goals.

Long term this project includes education in agribusiness; best practices to limit climate change complications, how to build community buffer stocks of surplus produce, and how to work together for sustainable solutions to eliminating hunger.

100% of all public donations will go to the project or fund that the donor designates (minus transaction cost, if applicable).

Donate now.

Planet Changer is empowering this community to implement sustainable hunger solutions to provide for their children, themselves, their families, and their surrounding area. Will you join us?
