About CHAIN Uganda
Established in 2008 as a community based organization in Mpigi-Uganda, our primary focus was to serve farming communities in response to widespread household poverty, food security, poor health and social welfare all of which stemmed from lack of coordinated efforts in agriculture, nutrition and enterprise development interventions in Uganda.
Central to our work was building capacity of small holder farmers through supporting formation and coordination of self-help groups to effectively transition from subsistence levels to commercial farming for improved incomes and livelihood.
It’s all done through enabling access to inputs in terms of appropriate technologies such as improved seeds, agro research and farm management systems, micro finance and access to markets. Secondary emphasis is to promote community health and environmental protection through nutritional education, directing human behavior on land use and engaging in environmental protection activities regarding crop and animal husbandry.Our core values
We are committed to freeing people from all forms of discrimination by providing and advocating for everyone to have opportunity to unlock their potential regardless of gender or social status.
