Agriculture Support

Equipping hundreds of subsistence farmers to add value to their crop through environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices.

In partnership with Farming God’s Way, JENGA is training and equipping subsistence farmers with agricultural techniques aimed at both increasing productivity, as well as conserving the precious land resource for the future. By implementing techniques such as mulching, minimal soil disturbance and composting, farmers are able to generate proven increases in both production and soil fertility.

And while these practices are vitally important, Ugandan farmers can further benefit by ‘adding value’ to their crop. This can be achieved through a range of activities such as grinding raw maize into maize flour, removing the husks from rice or handling coffee in a way that increases its quality rating. Such activities are traditionally accomplished by hand, but dedicated machines can process the crops much more efficiently and effectively. JENGA is equipping communities by providing access to these life changing machines. The farmers are able to reduce transport costs, conserve both time and energy, and dramatically increase their income through a local business operated in a transparent and honest fashion.

Joseph’s Story

Joseph wanted to grow coffee and matooke (a Ugandan delicacy), but unfortunately all his attempts had failed. This was due to the low nutrients in the soil, which had worsened through regular erosion. Hearing about this, we invited Joseph to join the ‘Farming God’s Way’ training.

After hearing all the teachings and trying out the skills that had been taught, Joseph started noticing a real improvement in his crops. In particular he found that switching to organic fertiliser, such as manure, using compost and mulch, as well as digging trenches to help to control soil erosion, made a real difference. After just one season of using these new techniques, saving money from no longer buying synthetic and substandard fertilisers, Joseph was able to harvest between three and four times the number of crops as the previous seasons. This enabled him to sell a greater quantity, which he used to support his family, but he also had enough to store as spare in case of poor harvests. This has been so important due to the impact of unreliable rainy seasons over the past year.

Joseph said, “the yield of my crops is bigger and my soil is healthier with better nutrients which aid crop growth. This has enabled me to better support my family”. He has been able to pay for his children’s school fees, medical bills and other needs. Not only this, but Joseph has been able to buy a larger plot of land so that he can grow more even more crops.
