  • Climate Smart Agriculture

    Livelihood and Environment Conservation

    Strategic Objective: To Improve the wellbeing of households in the targeted communities while promoting community led environment conservation.

     

    Strategic Actions:

    Recognizing that agriculture is the backbone of our economy, InPact will respond to the needs of rural farmers by promoting farmer productivity, moving beyond subsistence and promote enhanced access to the critical factors of production. Priority focus will be crop productivity, diversification and marketing as a means to increase house hold income. Additionally, InPact will offer practical knowledge and skills in Climate smart  agriculture practices  production, post harvest management, agribusiness and will facilitate farmers to access market and credit opportunities.

     

    Recognizing that farmers face serious challenges relating to seed varieties and farm inputs,  InPact through its social enterprises department, will supply high quality  and stress tolerant seeds, tools and other farm inputs. Further, InPact will improve on the entrepreneurial skills of farmers’ groups. We shall create awareness on the right foods to eat and promote their production within communities so as to reduce malnutrition and stuntedness. A demonstration model farm will set up in Kanungu to serve several purposes but principally as a training ground for farmers.

     

    Producing the food we need in a manner that protects the environment is a top priority for our interventions. Therefore InPact shall promote horticulture with an objective of contributing to environment protection and at the same time, increase food security and household income through the sale of fruits.In view of the continuous littering of non bio degradable waste in the targeted sub regions, InPact will undertake to preserve land and water resources by working with communities to instill greater understanding of the long term, potentially negative consequences of environmental degradation. In this respect, InPact will focus on promoting practices that are eco-friendly through the 3Rs (Reduce, Recycle and Re use) save bio mass degradation through clean and efficient cooking energy and promote waste segregation with an aim of ensuring that some waste is sold. It’s also proposed that InPact will construct an Incinerator in one region to burn disposable sanitary pads, pampers, polythene materials etc. Further, from plastic bottles, InPact will construct a food shed in Kilima primary school in Kanungu district.

  • Gender and Advocacy

    Equality is the key to development

    The Girls to Girls Initiative – Taking back control of our narrative/ A journey to reclaiming our Dreams.

    This is an innovative initiative developed by InPact to enable girls to take back control of their lives. The focus of this initiative is aimed at girls who are victims of early marriages, sexual harassment, domestic violence and are school dropouts. Therefore, the project puts emphasis on development of livelihood skills like reusable pad making, tailoring, handcrafting, baking and more. The trained girls become role models to inspire others who maybe victims of the same challenges in their communities. This initiative also creates a safe space for the girls to speak up about their challenges and find possible solutions.

     

    Proposed Intervention

    In line with Uganda’s Roadmap to realizing the Demographic dividend, there is need to empower girls to take back the control of their social and economic lives and also stand up against the injustices they face daily. Therefore, Girls to Girls Initiative intends to mobilize young girls to develop their skills through reusable pad making training, tailoring, handcrafting and baking.

    The Girls to Girls Initiative intends to construct a counselling and skill development center in Kanungu District where Girls who have gone through these difficult experiences like Gender based violence, early childhood marriages and teenage motherhood to enjoy a safe space where they can receive counselling, express themselves and learn life skills that will enable them to pick up their lives again, be confident, productive and become change makers in their immediate communities.

     

    Psycho-social Support and Counselling

    This structure will initially focus on providing psycho-social support counselling, and support girls to come to terms with the challenging and traumatic experiences they have gone through. We will invest in helping girls understand their reproductive health cycles and demystify some of the myths and misconceptions that could have led them into early marriages and teen pregnancies. Working with senior women in the communities we will create dialogues with the girls and older women so that some of the cultural beliefs promoting vices that disadvantage women and girls can be challenged.

     

    Equip Girls with Economic Skills

    InPact will also focus on developing the economic skills of the girls by equipping them with the skills to produce marketable products. We will initially focus on making reusable sanitary pads to teach and tackle the issues of Menstrual Hygiene Management. InPact will use the same approach it has used in other geographic areas of intervention to train three girls from different parishes of Kanungu District that will then train other girls to start producing the pads that they will sell to out of school girls and women and also supply to all the schools in Kanungu and eventually the schools in Western Uganda. In addition to the livelihood skills provided, InPact will also provide soft skills training to the girls including marketing of the products produced.

    InPact will also create a safe space for the girls to amplify their voices on issues that have frustrated their efforts towards their dreams by creating a safe space for them to exercise their passions and develop their goals.
