Uganda: From a dependant refugee to a trading farmer

Fatuma Achau arrived in Uganda from South Sudan a year ago. She supports nine children: three of her own and six unaccompanied minors she has welcomed to her household.

In accordance to Uganda’s policy on refugees, she was given 30x30 meters of land to grow food for her family. With funding from the European Commission, the Danish Refugee Council provided her and other refugees arriving from South Sudan with seeds and farm inputs to start them off. The seeds included eggplant, tomato, cabbage and okra.
