Keep Me Working: £100 will pay for a whole year’s training, mentoring and support for a farmer

Support a farmer in Uganda with their last year of training.

Atimong Mary, from Kaler Village in Soroti, sits contentedly on her harvest of 13 bags of rice. She is overjoyed with her crops and knows that they will provide for her family, not only feeding them but also paying for school fees and medical bills.

Atimong is one of 280 farmers Rope has been supporting over the last two years through our Tithe to Thrive scheme. This has been a three year intensive training and mentoring programme and Atimong is evidence of its success.

Before the scheme, she and her husband survived by farming three acres, planting the same crops and producing barely enough to survive. Now she has learnt that she needs to diversify her crops and has learnt to grow simsim, rice and cassava. She has invested some of her income in a piggery, bought pigs and goats and is now farming five acres. Next year she plans to farm 10 acres, expanding her operation even further.

Atimong is one of 280 farmers being helped in this final year of the programme.
