Livelihood and food security promotion programme
Under this programme, CAFOMI aims to facilitate access to credit and motivate communities for group saving leading towards small enterprise development and income generating activities aimed at economic empowerment.
In 2016, CAFOMI in partnership with Water Governance Institute (WGI) identified Adjumani for implementation of an Aquaponics project to support livelihood, basing on the relatively low poverty index level coupling with large number of refugees that has outnumbered the host community.
The Aquaponics system is an integrated, plant powered technology where fish are reared together with plants. It is a close loop, recycling oriented technology in which waste water from fish tank is used to irrigate plants grown in a separate media in a symbiotic way.
CAFOMI appeals for support to establish an urban demonstration farm to boost Aquaponics projects in Kampala, also Aquaponics farmers in rural areas have formed associations to keep their projects running but will require further assistance to grow their farms.
