FARM STEW doesn't focus on Uganda's dire statistics and extreme poverty but on the God-given potential in Ugandans to thrive! The challenges faced by rural farm families could seem insurmountable yet, cultures throughout the centuries have looked to the Bible and nature itself as a source of wisdom. There we find a recipe for abundant life and sustainability. By gleaning from these sources, FARM STEW can equip vulnerable people with the necessary skills to improve their lives and their country as a whole.
Ugandans have a life expectancy of just 59 years. Why?
- The probability of dying for young children is 45% higher in rural areas
- Consumption of protein and micronutrients are insufficient
- Water and sanitation systems are lacking
- Widespread malnutrition costs Uganda $899 million per year
- 38% of children under 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition (stunting)
What We're Doing
Training whole villages on nutrition, agriculture and other health practices
- Teaching how to obtain a locally available healthy diet
- Encouraging locals to follow basic sanitary practices
- Supplying sanitary pads for girls, preventing dropouts and shame
- Equipping families with tools and seeds for sustainable gardens
- Training in rural villages, schools, churches, mosques, and prisons
