What Can You Do?
Fill the Storehouse

This March we are trying to distribute 3,000 seed loans to 3,000 NEW households who will participate in Cents for Seeds for the first time. 

Cents for Seeds enables women to have a sustainable income to provide for themselves and their communities, while learning about the best ways to care for their environment while they farm their crops.

 

As of Thursday, 18th March Ugandan President Museveni has issued a statement stating all community and religious gatherings of 10 people or more are banned and schools are closed, all for the remainder of the month. We admire his proactivity in getting ahead of any possible outbreak in Uganda.

We are in the middle of distributing 17,800 seed loans to women across northern Uganda. Usually this looks like multiple parish gatherings in numbers of 300 – 600 at a time. While Museveni’s rule will change the way this looks, it is affording us the opportunity to be innovative in the face of crisis. We are responding rapidly with our team to ensure that seed loans will be continue to be distributed with new parameters.

We need your help now more than ever. A simple $30 donation can help to fill the remainder of the storehouse so these loans can be distributed and families can begin farming. They are relying on us.

Give!

The first and easiest way you can support our projects in northern Uganda is to give. Any amount goes a long way, and will contribute to empowering communities out of poverty. Some specific impact amounts are below:

$30 – 30kg Cents for Seeds loan for one woman or man and their family

$50 – Essential Medical Supplies for the Kristina Health Centre

$90 – 90kg of Seeds will provide 3 Cents for Seeds loans

$250 – Repair a broken well and restore water to a community

$1,000 – 1,000kg of seeds will provide 33 women with a loan, impacting most of a village

$7,500 – build a new well in a remote village desperately in need of water

Corporate partnership

A donation of $30

per month will provide 12 life changing seed loans to women in Uganda

This is Dorcas. When her 18 month old daughter Grace swallowed a nail, Dorcas didn’t know what to do. She didn’t have easy access to health care, and she had limited funds. She waited to see if the nail would pass, but unfortunately Grace deteriorated and started to cough badly. Dorcas hurried her to Lira hospital 25km away, where she was x-rayed and it was confirmed that the nail was lodged in Grace’s lung. Luckily Dorcas was able to draw a loan from her Village savings group that she joined as part of Cents for Seeds. Each woman saves money into a group fund that is able to give loans, paid back with interest, that is divided up between the group. Using her loan, Dorcas travelled to Mulago hospital where Grace had life saving surgery.
