Vi Agroforestry has long experience from working in Uganda. We have been improving the environment and the livelihoods for small-holder farmers in the country for more than 25 years. Our country office in Uganda is based in Kampala and our work in focus strongly on both environmental issues as well as to eradicate poverty. We work with multiply partner organisations in various parts of the country. We support coffee farmers, farmers in cattle corridor, refugees in the northern prat of the country and farmers effected by deforestation. Recent years Vi Agroforestry has developed new projects and involved new partners and new areas in our work.

This dream has become a reality today”, she says. The trees do not only contribute to improved crop yield but also serve as fodder for the animals.
