Our Work in Uganda

Uganda is one of the few countries in Africa that receives consistent rainfall throughout the year. With an exception of a few dry spells in the Northern parts in December and January, the country enjoys an average of 150mm of rainfall per month. The potential for Agriculture in Uganda is therefore huge. It is on this bedrock that FCI moved to Uganda to help improve the quality of produce as well as commercialize smallholder farmers. Below are some of our interventions in Uganda
