COMMUNITY ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
FREDAfrica through Economic Empowerment program managed to empower several communities economically. Through both FREDAfrica’s local and international volunteers and friends, managed to train several groups of people in Agriculture especially, farming and raring of animals. We supported these community groups with projects such as Vegetable growing, maize, Bananas and upland rice. We have also donated pigs, chickens, cows and goats to them. These projects have improved on many people’s household incomes.
FREDAfrica wishes to thank all volunteers and friends who made donations to support this economic empowerment program to change lives of the needy communities. These activities have are carried out for both Commercial and Domestic use.
Animals are donated on a rotating basis. For pigs when it produces, a farmer returns 2 piglets to the program which is again donated to another farmer. This is the same with goats and cows. A farmer remains with the calf and gives back the mother cow to the program which is again donated to another farmer.
FREDAfrica gives you an opportunity to chose your project and support it. We encourage you to organise a vacation trip to come to Uganda and see where your money has been invested.
Volunteer today with FREDAfrica and get involved in all these community initiatives.
This program enables you to interact with the beneficiary of the project you are supporting.? Reports, pictures and all expenditures are sent to you.
