As the Alliance for Resilient Coffee (ARC) project comes to an end in Uganda, we are taking the opportunity to share our results and outcomes from the four year project, together with our implementing partners International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

Our collaborative research and tools have proved useful in improving the resilience of smallholder coffee farmers in Luwero to the impacts of climate change and increasing private sector engagement in climate-smart adaptation.

Thanks to USAID - US Agency for International Development for making this possible and funding the project.

Coffee Kids 2020 Summer Report is out!!

It’s National Nonprofit Day!

Our work goes beyond coffee production. The majority of smallholder farmers are struggling to make a living and the potentials of the young generation in coffee regions are not cared for. It is our goal to continue changing that. We support smallholder families to take a proactive role in shaping their lives in an informed and self-determines way so they can drive the prosperous development of their livelihoods for themselves and their communities.

Lets continue to empower farmers! Because Farmers Deserve Prosperity!

We need to increase our analytical view on #COVID__19 crisis. Short-term effects distract from long-term needs of smallholder coffee families. @HRNStiftung conducted a survey about impact of COVID-19 in coffee farmer communities to find out about that. https://www.hrnstiftung.org/hrns-warns-of-covid-19-long-term-effects-for-smallholder-families-in-coffee-regions/

Yesterday, more than 350 people from over 100 countries around the globe 🌍 joined us to discuss how accelerating #FarmerLedIrrigation development 💧🌱 can be sustainable and inclusive. Did you miss it? Not to worry, you can watch the 📺 recording here 👉🏾https://bit.ly/FLI2vidR
