Water for farms (WOFA)

Water for Farms (WoFa) is an Initiative by Ngabi International in partnership with Uganda National Farmers Federation (UNFFE). The overall objective of the initiative is to increase the availability of accessible climate smart food for the growing population in Uganda through affordable irrigation and water transfer systems among smallholder crop, livestock and fish farmers and agro-enterprises. This will be achieved by reducing the affordability barrier for Ugandan rural dairy and harvest farmers to gain access to Water solutions.
