The major aim of the project is increase on the food supply for HUREED staff members as well as vulnerable members in our shelter due to increasing economic deprivation worldwide. HUREED came up with a program where we grow crops on a small scale since we haven’t yet got our own land, the plants grown were basically maize, greens banana plantation and tomatoes and this has helped us to reduce on expenses like costs on food and greens

Under this program, we have managed to conduct several garden follow-ups, s both at Matale and Nakazadde gardens, preparation of gardens and nursery beds and transplanting of tomatoes, greens and eggplant. We also conducted Irrigation, weeding, mulching and crop spraying to reduce on the risk of pesticides for proper growth and harvesting.

FOOD BANK

The HUREED Food Bank Program gives limited food support to our target groups most especially the community members who are suffering from hunger, evicted from their homes, HIV Positive and those who are unemployed. Through this program, a total of 22 vulnerable members were given food support to curb hunger amongst them.

HUREED SHELTER

In the HUREED Shelter located at Ngogwe- Buikwe District, we harbor fifteen (15) homeless members who are HIV positive, evicted from their homes and those who have been removed from Police custodies and fear going back to their families. In this shelter, we provide everyone who is in our shelter with food, water and electricity.
Throughout the second quarter of 2023, our organization faced a challenge of inadequate funds to support people in our shelter but we strived hard to see that they lived a better life no matter the harsh monetary circumstances.

FINDING

Economic deprivation has been a great challenge to the community members, un employment and rampant poverty has led to increased crime rate.
Many local leaders have little knowledge about human rights and they need to be sensitized more about people’s rights.

People in rural areas lack knowledge about their rights and more sensitization and awareness sessions are needed on these areas.
Police is among the perpetrators of human rights violations against vulnerable members and there is much need to address this.
