Our fa

rmers in northern Uganda faced huge threats with the re-emergence of COVID-19 due to lockdowns, transportation and marketing disruption, and increased infection rates, especially among marginal and women farmers. As businesses suffered financially, food security is also threatened by increased costs for parts and supplies, the unreliability of cross-border trade, and shortfalls in access.

Even the most successful Ugandan farmers are facing the possibility of losing their business due to circumstances beyond their control. VAC-NET is supporting them and keeping them connected. We need your help today so that we may reach more women farmers and entrepreneurs and continue to strengthen and build resilient local food markets that can weather difficult times.

We have learnt so much from the opportunity that came a long with the effects of COVID-19 Pandemic disruptions. One factor that stood out strongly is the possibility of self- reliance.

Moving forward we will continue to support micro loan support to small holder farmers, provide information and facilitate market linkages.

We can do this together

The pandemic disproportionately impacts women and girls, in profound and challenging ways. With upticks in gender-based violence, teen pregnancy, increases in poverty, and food scarcity, we redoubled its effort to continue addressing period poverty and menstrual health education. During lockdown, girls are most vulnerable and the support and access to sanitary supplies was a critical piece to combat hopelessness and isolation. We created a delivery schedule to cover as many villages as possible, ensuring women and girls continue to manage their menstrual health with dignity.


  • 82 girls prevented from early and forced marriage through our access to justice program

  • 42,900+ girls and boys successfully reached with menstrual health education in addition to 150,000+ sanitary pads distributed
