Tulime - Empowering Smallholder Farmers
Seasonal changes due to climate change remain one of the biggest challenges facing Uganda's smallholder farmers today. The Tulime [Farmer-Field Schools] is a vital program implemented by Wilmat Development Foundation in the rural and humanitarian communities of Uganda, recognizing the significance of the agro-based economy in the country. The program addresses challenges faced by farming communities, such as climate change, malnutrition, food insecurity, and poverty, and aims to enhance sustainability and build resilient communities. To date, we have triggered the establishment of over 45 farmer field schools/Groups with over 4,800 beneficiaries, set-up 2 demo gardens, enabled creation of 250 backyard gardens and continuous building smallholder farmers’ capacity to respond to the ever-changing farming seasons by enabling access to and utilization of Climate Smart Agricultural methodologies, Clean Energy access to boost production, community storage systems for adequate food stocks to ensure food security and sustainability of the market demands for stabilizing household incomes.
