Farmers Overseas Action Group

Registered Charity Number: No.1164747

We were established in 1981 by a group of Worcestershire Farmers, who were concerned about farmers and their families in rural Uganda. We continue to assist this community.

Why?

More than 1 in 5 rural Ugandans are living below the poverty line today. This is unacceptable. But we can help. Figures also show that 30 per cent of all food produced in Uganda is lost due to poor post-harvest handing and inadequate storage. Our mission is to help farmers to grow more and waste less food.

How?

With your support, we make affordable loans to groups of families where rural poverty is at its worst. This way we can transform the lives of thousands of families where children are getting food, medicine and an education.

Alongside our enterprise projects we have a proud history of supporting education and health professionals and in particular helping disabled children to access essential health-care and education.

That’s why we work with partner organisations in Uganda who share our passion for change.
