What We Do
We invest in developing and supporting peer networks and strategic relationships.
Agroecology Farmer Camp
“We are farmers – working together in the garden is where the relationships form.”
With a crowdfunded grant from SeedMoney, FCDE facilitated a two-day Agroecology Farmer Camp to strengthen relationships between like minded organizations, provide an opportunity for peer-learning and experience sharing around agro-ecological methods; and encourage collective action to advance food security and agroecology in the region. The Farmer Camp was hosted by Kiima Foods and Karambi Group of People with Disabilities (KaGPWDs) and brought together six grassroots organizations from Kasese and Rukungiri districts. The two days were filled with peer-led, practical workshops; lively team building and discussions; and guided reflection and brainstorming.
Elevating Women Leaders
“One of the biggest challenges I face as a woman leader is the lack of self confidence and assertiveness and to assure myself that even as a woman, am able to go against all odds and be an exemplarily leader.”
