Resume:

I denne treårige udviklingsindsats integrerer Støtteforeningen til selvhjælp i Uganda og Mend the Broken Hearts Uganda nyskabende landbrugspraksis rettet mod fødevaresikkerhedsforbedring og velkendte koncepter med indkomstskabelse og spare-låneaktivitet i selvhjælpsgrupper og engagering af lokalsamfund i rettighedsfremme. De to primære målgrupper er 2400 bondehusstande og 100 ressourcepersoner og lokale ledere i tre delamter i det fattige Isingiro. Husstandene organiseres i grupper og hjælpes til en landbrugsmæssig omdannelse, der forbedrer deres udbytte, indkomst og trivsel. Opsparing og lån i grupperne vil give bønderne mulighed for at forvalte deres indkomst og foretage investeringer til yderligere forøgelse af deres socioøkonomiske niveau. Borgerne vil blive gjort bevidst om deres rettigheder og i stand til at hævde dem. Således vil de blive fortalere for ordentlige serviceydelser fra myndighederne, som inddrages aktivt i projektet og engageres til at påtage sig deres ansvar.
