Empowering 15 Ugandan rural farmers to thrive by transforming their smallholder farms into profitable businesses.

by #WeAreDOTS in Windsor, England, United Kingdom

At Daughter of the Soil, our customers harness the goodness of the soil to look good, feel good and do good.

Our 100% plant-based skincare range nurtures more than just skin; it empowers marginalised rural farmers in Africa to earn a sustainable living.

Why?

We want to create a world where rural farmers have the skills and tools they need to thrive. Many of them spend a lot of time out in their fields with little to show for it. But, with a little help, they can increase their yield and sell into more fruitful markets. We’re currently empowering 15 rural women farmers in Mityana, Uganda to do just that.

How?

Over the last 18 months, we've successfully funded the delivery of a best practice training programme which is fantastic. This has given the farmers the necessary knowledge and skills to increase their yield, develop resilient farming systems and take the first step into entrepreneurship.

Our next goal is to provide the required tools to help them transition to successful farming businesses. And this is where you come in.

Right now, when you purchase any Daughter of the Soil skincare product on Crowdfunder, 50% of the proceeds go towards funding the purchase and installation of a milling machine. Selling approximately 500 products on this platform will help us to achieve this goal.

  • You’ll empower the farmers to process their raw commodities (such as maize) into new products (such as mealie meal) that they can sell in new markets.
  • You’ll give them the chance earn more income, by processing raw commodities on behalf of other farmers in the region too.
  • You’ll harness the goodness of the soil to look good, feel good and do good.

We are Daughter of the Soil.
