African Food and Peace Foundation

Promotes community-based development projects in rural Uganda by providing financial and strategic resources. Our established partner organizations address education for women and girls, food security, agricultural innovation, and entrepreneurship. Food and Peace Foundation supports innovative education and leadership programs for women and girls in Africa in order to transform marginalized rural areas into sustainable thriving communities. We support this effort through the Uganda Rural Development and Training Program, which has worked in rural Kibaale district in western Uganda for more than two decades. The Program follows a development approach that merges functional education and training with sustainable rural development in order to empower the marginalized people living in rural communities.

The Uganda Rural Development and Training Program works from an 80-acre campus in Kibaale, which includes the African Rural University, the Institute for Business, Vocational and Media Studies, a residential primary and secondary school for 260 girls, a community radio station, a human rights center, and a demonstration organic farm.

The African Rural University is the first accredited university for women focused on rural development in Africa. The university helps women gain the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to be effective rural development specialists and change agents in their communities.

African Food and Peace Foundation supports these efforts which allow individuals and communities to articulate their needs and identify local resources and solutions to meet them. The result is an environment where communities create their own prosperity, peace, health, freedom and happiness.
