ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT:
Income generating activities
Care Community Education Centre(CCEDUC)/child development is aimed at Income Generating Activities with the goal of promoting Economic empowerment of the rural poor women and Girls in the development process. The main areas for intervention in this respect include the initiation of the following:

1-Tailoring

 

Tailoring has helped the widows, and other youths to acquire skills which they have used to transform their households. Our tailoring project involves designing and making bags, African wears.however, Since there is lack of enough machines the only 7 sewing machines which the organisation has is being used by 54 beneficiaries. The beneficiaries are able to gain knowledge which they later on use to earn a living for their families.however , there is a need to aquire more machines that can help in empowering more skills for these vulnerable groups who are too many in the suffering communities.

Sustainable Organic Agriculture
Sustainable Organic Agriculture (SOA) is described as an approach to agricultural production, which minimizes or excludes the use of agro-chemicals in favor of using natural alternative products within an individual’s farm, or in a farming community.
The major advantage of using organic products in farming include minimization of adverse aspects associated with inorganic chemicals e.g. retention of residues in food, avoidance of resistance of various pests to chemicals as well as non-encountering of exorbitant costs of inorganic chemicals.
CCEDUC is therefore achieving this through training and encouraging peasant farmers/ communities to adopt sustainable organic farming in partnership with French Embassy to Uganda

 

Problem statement
Considering the nature of farming in Uganda and its agro-ecological conditions, Care Community Education Centre believes that the livelihoods of the small holder farmer’s majority can best be improved through the adoption and implementation of sustainable agriculture (SA) practices.
Currently the majorities of farmers are not practicing Sustainable Agriculture and hence often face food insecurity and poverty leading to environmental degradation while in search for food. This is largely due to the following factors:
Lack of skills and knowledge E.g. what, when and how to grow.
Lack of information sharing and use.
Lack of research back up
Gender inequity
Little advocacy in Sustainable Agriculture
Few marketing opportunities (information, skills and outlets)
Lack of access to credit facilities
Lack of input supply and poor availability resources
STRATEGES
The organization uses the following strategies to address these constraints to solve the earlier problem statement with rural communities as the target:
Capacity building for Sustainable Agriculture
Advocacy program
Lobbing (raising) funds
Capacity building for Sustainable agriculture
The capacity need for peasant farmers and the organization are in particular:
Production techniques
Marketing (farm planning and agribusiness)
Organization development
Advocacy skills
