Ongoing Projects

These are our Ongoing Projects aimed at transforming the lives of the vulnerable communities and those living with sickel cell disease

Aquaponic System

AQUAPONICS is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. We train our community to set an Aquaponic System with materials that are cost saving to grow fish for home home consumption and commercially. This is done to improve household income and nutrition suplement.

Maggot Farming

Maggot farming is becoming a lucrative business day by day. These margots are used as poultry feeds. Margots have high market demand country wide since poultry farmers are now resorting to margots instead of other types of poultry feeds. Margots are also rich in proteins.

Optimized Farming System

AFNA Uganda empowers the community through training and awareness programs on crops that act as nutrition suplement. We have trained over 1000 direct beneficiaries and over 5000 have indirectly benefited from these projects.

Soil Management(Anthill Technology, Soil Solarization, Soil Pasteurization and Soil Testing)

The increase in population has resulted to land fragmentation increasing the number of small household farmers in Uganda. These farmers consitently use the land leading to soil infertility yet they cannot farm inputs like manure. Adopting appropriate soil management technology will not only result to food security but will promote nutrition and better livelihood of these people.

Other projects

AFNA is implementing other projects like agri-ecology, appropriate postharvest handling of food and organic agriculture to promote nutrition, health and livelihood of people living with sickle cell disease.

System strengthening

Supporting the care takers of patients admitted in hospital wards is critical in a health system since it directly increases the survival rates of malnourished children. In this program, we provide food and other essentials to such vulnerable and psychologically tortured individuals, follow up discharged and defaulting cases while integrating CMAM because they are critical in successful rehabilitation of a sick child.
