Agricultural project for the Mijale community
Agriculture, Livelihood & Business Training for Vulnerable IDP’s on the South Sudan Border, Uganda

In collaboration with Hope Help Action, Sustain for Life is implementing a 12-month project aimed at providing agricultural, business, and financial training, as well as distributing seeds and farm tools, to 120 of the most vulnerable families (including disabled individuals, widows, and single mothers) in the Mijale community, situated on the Uganda-South Sudan border. This project’s primary objectives are to enhance sustainable farming skills, offer locally relevant finance and business training, promote food security, provide nutritional support through resources, and encourage the adoption of more effective farming methods. Furthermore, it seeks to address inequalities and reduce stigma by focusing on the most vulnerable households.

We anticipate achieving the following project goals by the end of the 12-month project period:

  • Nine hundred beneficiaries will acquire new sustainable skills, leading to increased income and future income-generating opportunities, thereby reducing their reliance on relief aid.
  • The project will result in increased crop harvests, which will contribute to a reduction in acute food insecurity within the community. This, in turn, will directly improve the nutritional status of the 120 beneficiaries and their extended families, estimated to reach approximately 900 beneficiaries.
  • The project will also contribute to a reduction in inequalities and stigma, as the beneficiaries are selected from the most vulnerable subgroups, including persons with disabilities, widows, single parents, and people living with HIV.
