BD Project

Broederlijk Delen Project

Broederlijk Delen Project

The BD project is a 5-year programme from 2022 to 2026 with the overall objective to improve food, nutrition
and income security of family farmer households and youth in the Rwenzori and Lango sub-regions
in Uganda. The specific objectives of the project are to:

  1. Promote the implementation of agroecology principles and practices with the family farmer
    households and youth in a Participatory Action Research (PAR) approach.
  2. Work with local and national governments on the development and implementation of agro-
    ecology-related policy frameworks, based on farmers’ needs and interests.
  3. Promote gender equality and equal access to resources in the family farmer’s communities
    through awareness-raising, empowerment and training, at the household and community levels.

The outcome of the project is to see family farmers and youth (m/f) belonging to the family farmer
households in Kabarole, Kamwenge, Kitagwenda, Kyenjojo and Amolatar achieve improved food-,
nutrition- and income security on resilient and productive farms and actively participate in decision-
making processes at household-, community- and national levels.
Facilitation for Peace and Development (FAPAD) together with Initiative for Community
Empowerment and Support (ICES) will jointly implement the project in two (2) sub-counties of Awelo
and Muntu in Amolatar District (Lango sub-region), Uganda.

In Amolatar, the project directly targets;

  • 1,000 family farmer households
  • 60 youth in 2 purely youth groups
  • 2 sub-county (lower) Local Governments & 1 district Local Government.
  • 32 farmer organizations (Participatory Innovator groups).

The indirect targets are;

  • 3,000 households in the community were influenced indirectly.
  • 27,000 community members are not directly targeted through interventions but have
    the advantage of changed policies.
  • 100 youth inspired by youth targeted in the programme.
  • 25,000 people in the communities are reached through mass and media engagements.
