Food and Nutrition security
 
Agriculture contributes to 65% of the GDP and 85% of export earning. More than 70% of the rural populations are employed by this sector. Of the estimated 30 million people in Uganda, close to 85% live in rural areas and are engaged in agriculture

According to the recent surveys made by UNDP, ¾ of the population of Uganda live in rural areas and are food insecure causing hunger and malnutrition among the rural communities especially the women and children.

MAFA’s food security program supports the targeted rural communities with various agronomic training practices, improved cereal and legume seeds, animals, high value crops like mushrooms, fruits apples, paw paws, avocado and vegetables to ensure high yields for increased household food and nutrition security. This improves health among the communities due to reduction in nutrition related diseases like kwashiorkor.
