AKASI FARM INITIATIVE

To lessen poverty in Uganda by agriculturally and economically empowering women & girls

Mapping out
MAPPING IS IMPORTANT

Selection of one woman participant from the first 300 beneficiary families. Maps represent the real world on a much smaller scale.

Training

A GROUP OF 50 CHOSEN PARTICIPANTS ARE TRAINED ON HOW TO USE FARMING MACHINES AND TOOLS

Bore-hole

Our Structures progress

THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE PROJECT

Because we only hard farmland and need structures for offices, storage and classrooms.

Livestock and seeds

Farmers are offered a chance to farm with Akasi

Selection of one woman participant from the first 300 beneficiary families. Maps represent the real world on a much smaller scale. 

Each of the participants after training will be offered a chance to farm with Akasi for the first season after training. The produce will then be sold and the money to be used for maintaining the farm which makes this a sustainable project. Once the season is finished, the participants will each receive 15kg seeds (for either maize or bean) and after 5 months, the goats, sheep, chicken and pigs will have given birth. The kid, piglet and chick will be distributed to the participants as starting capital. After a year these will have given birth and the next lot of 200 families will get the kid, piglet and chick.
