The picture in Teso is grim, almost half (48.6%) of the
population depends on subsistence/small holder farming
compared to the national average of 39% (UNHS 2021).
With poverty standing at 21.9%, Teso is the fifth poorest
region in Uganda (UNHS 2021). While Uganda as a whole
is largely food secure some regions, including Teso are
prone to food stress (MAAIF 2019).
SOCADIDO has a dream to further support small holder
farmers to boost food production and productivity, increase
household income, increase Agri-product value addition
and knowledge on climate smart agriculture.
In our current strategy, we intend to improve livelihood
resilience of 84,000 household caregivers and youths by
2026
