We are growing passion fruit!
In partnership with FAO Uganda, Global Refugee Initiatives is supporting refugee farmer groups to grow grafted passion fruits in Kiryandongo refugee settlement.
Applying a block farming approach, GRI provides land, agro inputs as well as trainings on passion fruit planting to the refugee farmer groups. Grafted passion fruits provide a buffer against shocks and risks associated with seasonality and other challenges like pests and diseases that attack ungrafted passion fruits.
The initiative aims at diversifying household incomes of refugee farmers and improving their food security.
