Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsIn a formerly war-ravaged region in Northern Uganda, Gulu Agricultural Development Company purchases, gins and sells fair trade cotton from smallholder farmers. Many of these farmers were recently Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs) who are returning to their farms for the first time in many years. With the fair trade program, GADC can pay premium prices to local cotton farmers and sell the cotton lint to foreign buyers at a healthy profit. The lives of the farmers who work with GADC has improved since the coming of GADC to Northern Uganda.
AJFA is an association of 12,533 farmers based in northern Uganda. The association’s mission is to harness and equip its member groups and their communities for social transformation, sustainable economic development and a just society. In forming an association, farmers are better able to access markets and improve their agronomic practices and productive capacity. The fair trade premium is used for community development projects. First of all, a clean cook stove program for farmers and their families and the purchase of ox ploughs to enhance farm productivity. AJFA has also bought text books for schools in Amuru and Nwoya.
