Food Security & Livelihoods Improvement
When we first started TPO Uganda, we would provide refugees and displaced people with mental health services. We always felt a big what’s next was missing. That is how we begun implementing economic empowerment components across all our programs.
Our food security and livelihood interventions target entire households. We focus on; increasing household incomes; promoting hygienic practices and increasing agricultural productivity and farming as a business.
We empower families with skills to sustainably increase food production including modern farming and agronomic practices.
Households learn post-harvest handling methods to enable them store food for future consumption especially during periods of scarcity and to avoid unnecessary waste.
Community based behavior change campaigns led by community facilitators and community champions enlighten families on essential food nutrients and on child growth and development.
TPO’s Livelihoods interventions target over ten districts in South Western, Northern, West Nile and North Eastern Uganda and are supported by USAID, COMIC RELIEF, CARE International, AVSI and FHI360
