Food and agriculture
This is one of our key programs where we have been mobilizing and sensitizing communities on food security. Under this program, we mobilize communities in groups especially we have formed groups of women and youth who are trained with the help of agriculture experts on harvesting and handling produce, animal and pest control, produce treatment, produce storage, tree planting and watering. We have also managed to give out 5,000 fruit tree seedlings to communities in Kabaale, Nyakasenene, Kigaaga, Kijumba, Nyahaira and Katooke areas.
With the different activities of oil and gas in the Albertine region, many people are selling off their land to speculators to buy boda-bodas living out their traditional economic activities which is agriculture to venture into small retail businesses. Therefore, it was based upon this background that ORRA designed this program to help its communities to improve on their agriculture practices to be able to tap opportunities from the oil and gas sector in the region.
