Hunger is the leading cause of death in the world. Our planet has provided us with tremendous resources, but unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished. If we promote sustainable agriculture with modern technologies and fair distribution systems, we can sustain the whole world’s population and make sure that nobody will ever suffer from hunger again.
Relief Aid Project
GPSU offers direct access to up-to-date humanitarian aid to communities affected by disaster that include floods, conflicts, drought, and any other emergencies.
Kitchen Gardening Project
Our focus is to end hunger and ensure access by all people, the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants and refugees to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food all year round.
Food Security Project
Our target is to double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists, refugees, and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.
Uganda refugee households have high levels of food insecurity compared to host communities, which negatively affects their Resilience Capacity Index. This high level of food insecurity results from the fact that refugees’ access to land is limited and that they have fewer animals and produce fewer types of crops, or no crops at all. As such, they remain highly dependent upon humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs and are often forced to adopt negative coping strategies to deal with food shortages.
