NAMPYA FARMERS MARKET
While the poorest Ugandans include millions of rural subsistence farmers living undernourished and degraded lives as hallmarks of what Africa represents, econpmic depenfemce is a primary driver of the many injustices facing out of school girls. This leaves them with limited opportunities to choose a future and they are often forced into early marriages or risky behaviors. Girls have limited access to small tracts of land, with very little knowledge of how to turn this natural resource into generated income. Additionally, poor agricultural practices have further discouraged entry into agriculture. So, with a mission of building resilient rural farming communities that are centered around young women, our inspiration is what if local economies and women-led businesses would be reviewed through tomato growing?
