    Dear sir/madam,
    I’m a Ugandan, and an Agribusiness entrepreneur. I’m so thoroughly sold on the work in which I’m engaged that my enthusiasm over it becomes contagious and others are influenced by it. Due to prolonged dry season, I haven’t been able to gain anything out of my farm.
    I’m inquiring, can I as well submit my proposal for funding my agribusiness farm. I really need help to facilitate illigation systems. Which email address can I use?
    Thank you for your kindness.

    VERDE-Uganda works with rural people in Tororo, Eastern Uganda to increase Traditional Food Crop Production, African Indigenous Vegetable growing, Pulses production and planting trees for climate change. During prolonged dry seasons when there is little food or no Agricultural activity, many families may have only one meal each day, rendering many children, seniors, the sick malnourished.
    Many rural families and Primary schools are also still dependent on traditional hand dug shallow wells which they share with their domestic livestock. The livestock step into the water, urinate, defecate and leave saliva in the well water as they take their turns to drink. Women and children who go to fetch water from these sources may then first live it to settle down and then fetch into their vessels for home use without boiling, causing a lot of health problems. We are faced with these community challenges which require immediate Interventions for the welfare of the people.

    I am head teacher in a poor USE school. badly in need of water and sanitation facilities. I have applied to this grant twice and never got anything. what is the right way to apply?

  • Avatar KAMABU Ivan Bwambale says:

    Thank u for the information. I happen to be living in a vulnerable less previlaged community where there is hardly any supply of safe water and the scramble to access it from the only one or two water source points has caused a lot of difficult livelihood like poverty as much time iswasted in the struggle for water, neglect of the girl child education who is mostly used as the collector of water, poor education standards as a result of high rate of absenteeism , late reporting for school, high dropout rates, early pregnancies and marriages, high risks of contracting HIV/AIDs and other life challenges. The area however has very fertile soils that if enough water for domestic, community and irrigation uses could be tapped through donor support ,there would be better livelihood, girl education promoted,most life challenges mentioned above would be addressed and production of food crops like vegetables beans, maize, Irish potatoes would be abundant for the benefit of the global community. Is it therefore permissible for me as a concerned native in that community to apply as an individual for this support to get us out of the vulnerable lifestyle. Thank u.
