Cooperative Commercial Agriculture and Improved Household Nutrition Project

Funded by: Sieben Foundation Country: Uganda Project Lead: Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity Notre Dame Collaborators: Kellogg Institute for International Studies

In Uganda’s Nkozi Sub County of Mpigi District, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies' Ford Family Program in Human Development and Solidarity works to promote cooperative commercial agriculture and improved household nutrition through primary school education. The community skills-building project focuses on providing nutritional education, awareness about hazards of improper hygienic practices, food security, and commercial cooperative agriculture. By providing this information to the community, the project aims to have a direct and positive effect on the well being of young children, the entire community, and especially expectant mothers; and long-term, to eventually improve income levels and increased access to safe water and sanitation.
