Joyce, a victim of the ongoing civil war in Uganda, is one of the farmers helped to farm her land successfully through our Groundnut Project.  Here is her story:

My name is Joyce. I am a widow and am 51 years old.  My husband was gunned down by rebels in 2003.  I have 5 children and care for 5 other children of my husband’s from another relationship.

Rope and their partners Youth Action Uganda helped me when I really needed help. I have applied all the things that I was taught about ploughing and planting and the bulls have become a real blessing as they help me plough my fields so much quicker.

I have planted groundnuts, beans, simsim, sweet potatoes and cassava. 

This has helped pay my children’s school fees and is helping to fund the building of a new house for my family.

May God bless Rope for your support!
