More than 70 percent of Ugandans depend on agriculture for their main source of livelihood. Crops grown for both food and cash include maize, beans, millet, cassava, groundnuts, and rice. Refugees depend on agriculture to supplement food aid supplied by the World Food Programme.
AAH Uganda livelihoods and food security projects supported refugees and farmers through:
· business and marketing skills training,
· enterprise development,
· village savings and loan associations,
· introduction of improved seed for crop production,
· dairy and goat production,
· artificial insemination,
· animal traction,
· capacity building in animal health and pasture management.
