Women Agricultural Project

UWOPED is fundraising money to start up an organic agricultural project for 450 mothers who are being affected by the lock down and live in the Kampala city center still and don’t work at all. These mothers used to have part time jobs like selling mangoes, tomatoes, fruits etc on the streets of Kampala where they used to either work in the morning or evening hours. In response to the presidential directive for a lock down due to COVID 19, these mothers can no longer afford to carry out their businesses because they no longer have capital for business due to usage of business capital on survival ie eating food, medication, shelter among others. For starters we would want this organic agricultural project to be in position to provide food to the families of our mothers during this prolonged lock down, at least we will be sure that they wont sleep on empty stomachs. Thus later we hope to open up a processing company for organic products that would be for sale hence acting as a source of income for these mothers.

With a contribution of 30$ per mother for 450 , a total of 13500$ would be the total budget for the project to start and cover the targeted number of mothers in plan. The collected money shall be accountably spent on items like, Hoes,slashers,seeds,watering cans,hiring organic agricultural experts,gum boats etc
