KAMPALA – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) hosted a national close out event on February 25 to celebrate the achievements of the USAID-funded Feed the Future Producer Organizations Activity, which commenced in 2016 and will end in April 2020.  The Producer Organizations Activity strengthened business capacity, governance, member services provision, and farmer-led advocacy in 25 secondary agriculture producer organizations in 12 selected districts in Uganda.

Feed the Future is the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative which addresses the root causes of poverty and hunger through providing agricultural knowledge and tools for people to feed themselves. In Uganda, Feed the Future works in 38 districts to make agriculture more productive and profitable, reaching a total population of 14 million people.
