The WFP inaugurated a pilot project in November 2010, which uses a gravity flow system to access water from the surrounding hills of Mount Moroto. Presently, 62 families in the villages of Nacelle, Nakambi, Chokoria and Naligoi in Moroto District are benefitting, growing vegetables on four acres.

It is believed that those involved in this project will have enough food for their families during the dry season. They will also be able to gain income by selling the surplus.

Our warmest appreciation, World Food Programme, for your assistance to increase food security for the gentle citizens of Uganda. May all people be blessed with an abundance of plant-based fare and joyful lives on a sustainable Earth.
