South Sudan Refugees (in Uganda)

Why

South Sudan Refugees (in Uganda)

The refugee crisis of South Sudan doesn’t often make the evening news but the scale and scope are enormous. The humble country of Uganda is hosting a million of these refugees, who’ve fled from horrific violence. Mostly they rely on limited food aid and there are almost no fresh fruits and vegetables, leading to health problems. Over half the refugees are children. Yet, they have small plots of land and a desire to learn. That’s where we see hope! FARM STEW's work with the refugees brought hope home. We were invited by leaders in South Sudan to start a team there as well. In January 2019, we launched a team of five trainers who are committed to bring the recipe of abundant life to a war-torn land.

The Challenges

Refugees from South Sudan and local Ugandans face many challenges: 

  • Almost 83 percent of the population resides in rural areas.
  • 84%of the women are illiterate.
  • 80 percent of the population defined as income-poor and living on an equivalent of less than US$1 per day.

What We're Doing

The FARM STEW recipe offers hope by:

  • Hiring refugees to reach refugees, we invest in the local people
  • Equipping families with tools and seeds for sustainable gardens
  • Teaching how to obtain a locally available healthy diet
  • Providing Uganda's best non-GMO seed for kitchen gardens
  • Encouraging locals to follow basic sanitary practices and developing enterprises 
  • Supplying sanitary pads for girls, preventing dropouts and shame
