Find organisations and networks to share information on sustainable agriculture and rural development
CARDI would like to link up with organisations and individuals to share information on sustainable agriculture and rural development. This could be by forming direct partnerships or by joining common-interest networks, both within Uganda and internationally.
Through these links we hope to gain new knowledge and ideas which will enable us to expand our activities and make our work with local farmers more effective. We would also like to pass our own experience on to others.
After a workshop arranged in Mukono which was about " Attracting More Volunteers to Our Projects" , Kawempe's LRs Mawanda Robert and Ochieng Kennedy had a meeting with Isaac Ssamba from Mukono who organised the workshop and brought an idea of starting a project that brings skills and funds together to help the undeprived communities in Uganda. We started HB Volunteer Uganda , http://hbvolunteeruganda.yolasite.com/
EFORDE have already given fruit and other tree seeds to several people in Nabitende and would like to provide more. To do this, they need to get access to free or reduced-cost seeds or obtain funding to buy these locally.
For this task we would like to hear from people who can suggest where EFORDE can obtain free seeds in Uganda or internationally, and ideas on organisations who can be approached for funding.

There are already teams forming to develop resources for local communities, to shape the way other platforms like Facebook and Twitter can be engaged to increase the effectiveness, to encourage peer-to-peer engagement, and to deal with certain topics occurring in multiple villages, amongst other things.
Do you have ideas or suggestions on any of these topics? Please join the group!
There are separate groups for discussing

Involvement of communities to monitor and demand for their rights is critical for sustainable rural development. Communities need to demand the authorities to account and fulfill their commitments to guaranteeing human/civil rights. We have developed a project proposal for sourcing out resources to this effect.
We request various expertise here help review attached document and provide advice/guide for possible sources of resources.
