The mission of St. Jude Family Projects (of the Rural Training Center for Sustainable Integrated Organic Agriculture) is to provide trainings and inspiring demonstrations on integrated organic agriculture. p>
St. Jude Family Projects are a vibrant and innovation in response to the need for sustainable livelihoods for small-scale farmers in Uganda. A self-sustaining integrated organic farm and bio-fueled home has turned into a demonstration that has inspired thousands of visitors and is now a Ugandan NGO. The Kizza Family established St. Jude in 1994 after introducing integrated organic farming courses to community members. It has since grown simply through word-of-mouth. In 15 years of operation, St, Jude training center has had a strong impact on rural farming in the area. It has also sparked over 1,000 marginalized individuals to join self-help groups to learn these farming methods and strengthen their agricultural endeavors.
St. Jude’s primary program is focused o sustainable integrated organic agriculture projects, which include training as well as over 15 demonstration projects, that include plantations, orchards, appropriate technology, water harvesting, fish farming, and more.
