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?

Fighting Hunger by Supporting Small Farmers

Christian Friis Bach, Danish Minister for Development, thinks fighting hunger is all about helping small farmers.

We agree! Planet Changer is finalizing a partnership to work with over 1000 small farmers to help them create sustainable food solutions for 100 communities throughout Uganda.

We Have More Than We Think…

‎”If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of the world. If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change, you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation you are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering. If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read at all.”
