Kiryandongo women’s garden
Refugees in Kiryandongo and in Uganda at large rely on food aid provided by World Food Programme WFP and other donors. And due to shortfalls of funding, WFP slashed its monthly assistance for refugees by 40 percent in Uganda. That left those refugees, particularly women and children food insecure and more vulnerable. The “Women Garden Project” which was adapted from a Dutch famous concept called “Moestuin” meant to fill the gap of the 40% of food rations that had been left by the WFP. Most importantly, promote ecological friendly production that favours the local environment. Ultimately, the goal behind this concept is always to equip 100 refugee women and their households who often lack technical know-how on sustainable farming practices. By sustainable farming practice, they can improve nutrition, and acquire food security, and self-esteem. Moreover, they can also sell the surplus produce for an additional income.
