In Northern Uganda we focus on farmers and households who are still recovering from a long internal conflict.
The majority of the population consist of the ususal households. We established a couple of AgroServie Centers in relevant markets and villages where we provide smallholder farmers and households with good quality inputs and advice.
Purpose of the FRC is to be a farmers’ resource centre where smallholders and other households can learn. In order to achieve this the FRC is a place of learning with well chosen and maintained demo fields, hospitable in receiving, guiding and training visitors, with relevant documentation.
Where we normally focus on our own initiatives, we started to support promising local initiatives in Arua. We are actively seeking for partnershps with people who have the same long-term commitment as we have. We are, for instance piloting such a partnership with the Fransican brothers who devote their life to the poor in remote areas.
