LAND RIGHTS FOR RURAL WOMEN FARMERS

Sylvia Nalubega
Posted May 5, 2020 from Uganda

Land is a major resource of production and engine for economic development and community livelihoods. Access and security to land is a key precondition for poverty and hunger reduction in rural areas has improved for certain population groups, especially for women and marginalized groups. The project aims at promoting land security through popularizing registration procedures for the local communities to protect their property. This help in reducing crop losses, destruction of livestock, houses and other property as well as imprisonment and assault that usually occur during evictions, grabbing and other land related conflicts. By working with the local land governance structures, the project not only promote sustainability but also accountability and better service provision. It is important for rural women farmers gain control and make decisions over land as a resource of production for them to meaningfully participate in economic development. Security of tenure through land registration is paramount for this to happen.

Hello Sylvia,

Welcome to World Pulse! Thanks for sharing your passion project and video with us. It's definitely a worthy cause. Is Aruwe your organization or an organization you're working for?

Hello Jill,
I am so happy to connect with you and the team here at World Pulse.
I have actually been working with ARUWE for 12 years and I have gained a lot of experience and documented a lot of my work there which I will continue sharing more on this platform.
However, I will moving on in July 2020 to work with growing organizations as I support in developing their programs and systems. I have so far signed up to work with three organizations including Shadows of a Child, Shared Action Africa and Life Redefined.
I am definitely looking forward to sharing more posts.
Thank you for reaching out to me.
I will be happy to know more about you.
Stay safe too.

Yes it is good that access to land and its security are an essential prerequisite for the reduction of poverty and hunger in rural areas. Agriculture is very important in the environment of our community, thank you for sharing this beautiful story

Thanks Zawadi for the kind remarks.

I like your name by the way Zawadi.

Dear Sylvia,

I hope this message finds you well?

Congratulations for posting your first story.

I've just read your responses to Jill and your dedication and passion is a testament of your strong character and integrity.

I'd love to learn more about your new role/s at Shadows of a Child, Shared Action Africa and Life Redefined.

Out of curiosity what do the women farmers grow?

Do you work with fair trade co-operatives in Uganda?

Many thanks again for sharing the fabulous video.

Take care and stay safe!

Thank you Sebena for the wonderful remarks.
Yes at Shadows of a Child, Shared Action Africa and Life Redefined, I am mostly doing resource mobilization and program development. These are located in the different districts in Uganda. Shadows of a child is focused on children and youth, Shared Action Africa works with refuge women and girls and Life redefined deals with mental health and substance abuse among youth and children.
The women farmers mostly grow maize, beans and rice for commercial purpose while they also grow cassava, bananas, vegetables for home use.
I have not really worked with trade co-operatives in Uganda but the women farmers I have worked with are organized in small producer cooperatives.
Tell me more about your work too.

Regards
Sylvia
