Kagulo Scovia – United Rural Women Food Pantry- Tororo
Did you know that the issue of men and boys stealing foodstuffs from their wives and mothers is not an uncommon case in rural Uganda? It is in fact, one of the key causes of domestic violence in rural Uganda. If this weren’t bad enough, when food is taken away and sold, the families are left with little or no more food, which can lead to starvation, lack of income and a great deal of suffering.
The United Rural Women Food Pantry in Tororo & Buteleja districts is a community-based project designed by mothers and widows, who courageously address the challenges of food storage, preservation and management at household levels.
