Sustainable Agriculture

Soil analysis:

We have taken a task to improve on the yields of crops in Arua district to set up the first ever soil testing practice for selected farmers before planting their crops.

Successful farm production starts with healthy soil. The soil is one of the most important farm assets. It provides crops with a valuable reservoir of water and nutrients. Each type of soil has its own properties. Soil texture cannot be changed, but farmers can always improve soil quality by managing the nutrient levels and soil pH. One of the most important factors in managing soil quality is regular, for Carbon Credit offset project, this hinges on sequestring CO2 in (degraded) soil in Uganda. This offers local farmers better soil while scoping investments out of it.

Agriculture is a core sector of Uganda’s economy. It contributed about 23% of GDP at current prices in 2011. Agricultural exports accounted for 48.5% of total exports in 2012. The sector provides the basis
for growth in other sectors such as manufacturing and service.

Prosthesis

Prosthesis: In Uganda, an artificial limb costs between Ush500,000 ($177.1) and Ush 2 million ($571), depending on the extent of a person's disability. And sometimes this goes higher, only few people can afford, majority of lower limb amputees cant afford

We are currently providing prosthesis to subsidize high costs in Uganda, the number of amputees estimated 10-15,000 leaving without limbs

Life and journey of arm amputees
The amputee population in Uganda stands between ten thousand and fifteen thousand, concentrated in the North, North-East, and West of Uganda. This number is on the increase because of the ongoing civil contlict and accidents.
Uganda has no prosthetics industry, all specialised componentry/equipment is imported. Very recently, a new supplier which has a local distributor in Uganda, has made ordering componentry and materials easier; nevertheless, the budgets particularly in government run facilities are not sufficient to meet demand.
Most Prosthesis are costly ranging from $1,200-$2,000 rendering many needy vulnerable and income handicapped unable to afford, most producers attribute this to high cost of imported materials that are not available to reduce the cost of the product.
When you move around the companies and government facilities, most machines are not operating to the full capacity because of limited support of materials and high costs as majority of these amputees are lower income earners.

Environmental conservation
Uganda is experiencing significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, drop in water levels, and increased frequency of extreme weather events like floods, as well as drought, whose social economic impacts make communities very vulnerable. Currently this is only 30% of the forestland in Uganda or about 1.5 million hectares or 7% of the total land area. With deforestation estimated at 1% per annum. This means by 2054, the forested land will be no more.

Happiness and Joy

Disability cases are many in Uganda, and out of  45million population, 12.4% are disabled. The world disability population is 15%.

World Action Fund organised fitting camps in 7 locations across the country, this attracted tearful joys to the beneficiaries

Wildlife Poaching and Trafficking in Uganda

In Uganda forest covers are significantly lost every year and wetlands adversely degraded and human settled and use of fossil fuel and old auto motives and poorly controlled automation and urban planning all contributes to carbon emissions.

Climate change can be overwhelming. The science is complex, and when it comes to future impacts, there are still a lot of unknowns. While real solutions will require action on a global scale, there are choices you can make in your day-to-day life to lessen your personal impact on the environment

Train A Girl Project

The current education system trains girls as job seekers not job creators. Many girls who have the chance to attain education are not ready to go in for agricultural work even when it is available but prefer white collar/office jobs. Studying the forms, causes and consequences of unemployment, illiteracy and proposing strategies for prevention of these relatively universal problems is an important but insufficient mission in Arua, West Nile Region. We need to rescue them in vocational training. Read more about this project
