If we can get this farming going on, we will stand on our feet. We still need to acquire land, fence off the land, install water solar pump and crush at a cost of $250,000
Farming presents a great opportunity for Acholi Resilience for its financial support and viability. This is because farming remains the main source of livelihood to nearly 80 percent of Ugandans. The economy of Uganda depends on the export of agricultural commodities within Africa and internationally. Acholi Resilience aims to tap into this opportunity for its income and sustainability. Therefore, we have decided to be one of the main farming businesses in Uganda, and we believe that this will help with solving the recurring costs.
Our main activity is beef production as traditionally this community only engage in subsistence farming. However, due to climate change subsistence farming is no longer viable due to rainfall delays and increasing temperatures.
