About USAID Programmes:

    Improving Youth Livelihoods in Agriculture program is a five-year program
    to increase opportunities for youth in agriculture to realize their
    potential and effectively contribute to Uganda’s social and economic
    development. The program will expand technical, educational and leadership
    opportunities in agriculture for youth ages 15-30 in select districts in
    Uganda, including Northern Uganda, through a market-driven approach for
    increased food security and employment for young men and women.
  • Uganda
    Producer Organizations’ Activity will focus on strengthening farmer
    organizations to become more business-oriented and better advocates for
    their respective members. The approach will focus on training members of
    farmer organizations in such areas as group formation, dynamics and
    cohesion, governance, financial management, trust, access to services and
    markets, and advocacy. The purpose is to create a critical mass of
    member-owned, democratically- governed organizations to meet the specific

    community.
