Projects in Uganda
Karamoja is one of the poorest regions in a country which is known as being very poor in general. In the projects here we try to help persons in a concrete and ongoing manner.
In Uganda, in west Africa, we have been involved for several years in projects in the region of Karamoja which are beginning to produce excellent results. Working with the association "Insieme si può" ("Together we can") we have supported and continue to support the activity of the Sezibwa Demonstration Farm, it involving 80 familes from the community of Mukono, and for a total of 640 persons. Thanks to the silos built and the many other initiatives undertaken we have managed to feed the popularion, notwithstanding the droughts of recent years. Also in Karamoja we have contributed to the development of school teaching in the agricultural disciplines, as well as those of the environment and the food resource sectors. This has also extended to contributions for the upkeep and maintenance of school structures. Finally to mention is the project we are following in the district of Morroto, one of the most underprivilged areas of the world. It is here that we support 'Choose Life Home Based Care', a local volontary organisationworking to defeat Aids through a programme aimed at children who are affected by the virus.
