Agricultural Training

Across 8 Refugee Camps in North Uganda

 

Providing Agricultural Training for South Sudanese refugees

CRESS aims to increase food security for the South Sudanese refugee families by delivering training to improve nutrition and provide income generation from growing vegetables using sustainable organic techniques.

Our Agriculture Training project, based at Kasengi Riverford Organic College (KROC) in Kampala, seeks to train instructors who can then support Sudanese refugee farmers and supply them with the necessary tools and seeds for their first crop. The project focuses on horticulture and the growing of a variety of vegetables, successfully and sustainably. Each farmer will look to cascade their knowledge within their respective communities and will be given advice and monitored throughout the growing season to ensure success.
