For six years, our partners have been working with 1,000 internally displaced people, victims of the civil war in Uganda. These people have become farmers, learning to farm land successfully through the simple act of growing groundnuts.
Now our partners want more farmers to extend their produce by growing fruit. We want each farmer to receive ten orange trees and five mango trees. We know that with an investment of £15, along with patience and careful tending, a grove of fruit trees will yield a harvest of £330 each season.
Christine is a young farmer from the Soroti district in Uganda. One of 1,000 farmers, she has learnt to farm her land successfully with Rope’s help. In two short years she now earns enough from 34 fruit trees to send her 2 children to school and buy food for her family.
If you are looking to buy a gift for someone who prefers to give than to receive, then why not help a farmer grow a fruit grove!
£15 will buy a fruit grove of orange and mango trees for one farmer.
