Organization Information

Mission Statement

To build thriving grassroots communities where economic prosperity, environmental sustainability and emotional well-being are balanced for the long-term benefit of all.


We are a non-profit social enterprise that helps smallholder farmers in rural Uganda to grow their way out of poverty, to improve their health and protect the environment. We do this by supplying agricultural inputs, financing Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs), and fostering climate change adoption.

Our core values are:

  1. Creativity: we encourage a safe and supportive space for experimentation and innovation to solve problems
  2. Humility: we show compassion and endeavor to understand, respect and value every individual
  3. Integrity: we do what we say
  4. Fairness: we promote equality and mutual respect; working towards relationships that are inclusive, trusting and participatory
  5. Fun: we value the enjoyment in creating friendly and productive working environments
We started as a program helping prevent violence among slum children in Kampala in 2009. We used football as a tool for social change. We gradually transitioned into supporting rural smallholder farmers and fully focused on Hoima in 2019; we currently work with over 500 farmers. Our areas of focus are:

  • Environmental stewardship
  • Rural youth development
  • Self-help banks (also known as Village Savings and Loans Association - VSLAs)
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Dignified livelihoods
