Abwono Farm is a farm to be in Nwoya District. The farms main goal is to provide hands-on Job training for vulnerable youths in Nwoya District, northern Uganda. Training youths with the self employable skills in Horticulture, vegetable production, poultry keeping and honey production.

In Northern Uganda, vegetable farming is still lagging behind the rest of the country whereby tomatoes are still being transported from Central Uganda (Masaka District) and cabbage from eastern Uganda (Mbale district) with eggs transported from the capital Kampala and surrounding areas. There are huge unlocked market opportunities within the region and the neighboring countries of South Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo. 

Abwono Farm aims to equip youths with the skills and knowledge to help them utilize their energy in the productive activities essential for food security, sovereignty, and the fight against poverty among the vulnerable younger population of Northern Uganda. 

The project is in need of £40,000 to help in start-up and activities. 

The initial Enterprise which the Farm shall have are the following;

Horticulture: Cabbages, Tomatoes, Green pepper.

With a view to the production of Honey (Apiary) Poultry, Fruits and others.

The estimated sum of funds is to help in getting essential tools and equipment, farm structures and acquisition of land (25 acres)

Finally, we shall be grateful to have you extend your hand and support us.

Let's make 'Agriculture and Youth Employment, Northern Uganda' happen
