Women's Empowerment Program Training
Field of Hope is providing basic agronomic training to 160 women in four Northern Uganda districts. This training consists of proper agronomic practices and training in pest and disease control, as well as harvest techniques and post-harvest handling and storage practices. The women are working to form cooperatives and are also participating in Village Savings and Loan Associations, and they are receiving training in household financial record-keeping. As part of this program, the women receive assistance with plowing, tools, and seeds.
