About Our Work
YICE Uganda implements practical regenerative farming activities targeting last
mile smallholder female and young refugee farmers in rural Uganda. The goal of our intervention is three fold; to promote food security, to regenerate the biodiversity and achieve climate change adaptation, and improve incomes for smallholder farmers. We carry out a number of community-led activities; such as: Practical farmer training in permaculture and regenerative farming, trainings in water harvesting, production of mobile low cost drip irrigation kit, production of organic fertilizers and mobilizing beneficiaries into savings groups.
Since 2016, intervention has directly benefited 1500 households. The households reached have achieved increased food security being able to have at least two meals per day, increased incomes through sale of farm produces, regenerated soils due to use of organic fertilizers, water harvesting and improved farming practices.
As a result, YICE has received several awards including the Spring Prize award in 2019, 2021 Ashden Regenerative Awards, the 2020 UNDP Climate Smart Challenge and appeared in several blogs and new letters.
