AFCE is a partner of the civil society fraternity that seeks to develop capacities and capabilities of small holder farmers in rural communities in Uganda.  This means we work to promote sustainable Agriculture as a strategy for rural development hence improved livelihood of the rural communities.

With the target beneficiaries mainly coming from the rural communities, AFCE has a conviction that it can strategically build the capacity of the vulnerable and the poor young people in the West Nile sub region to appropriately and effectively respond to socio-economic and environmental challenges they face; for them to become more productive and fully enjoy quality life.
