FARMING IS BUSINESS
MBADIFA is …
… (Mbarara district farmers Association) , a
Non-Governmental membership Organization
which was formed and registered in 1994.
… affiliated to the Uganda National Farmers’
Federation (UNFFE) in Kampala, Its aims are
to unite farmers and assist them to access better
services in the areas of production and marketing, through Lobby and Advocacy and access
to
service providers.
MBADIFA has worked with and received support from development partners like, DANIDA,
IVA, TRIAS, Farm Africa, PSFU-BUDS,
ACDI/VOCA and aBi Trust to implemented
various
programmes aimed at improving food and income security of the farmer
members in Mbarara District through trainings, experiments and demonstrations .
The organization has functional democratic
structures whereby the farmers at Parish level
through their farmers’ assembly elect Parish
Executive Committees (PECs) and two farmers’ delegates (one man and one woman) which
then send
delegates to the District Assembly where they elect the District Executive
Board (DEB) once in every three years. 1/3 of
the DEB must be women.
The DEB is charged with the responsibility of
running the organization through a Secretariat
of employed staff headed by the coordinator.

affiliated Civil society Organisations (CSOs) ,
such as women groups, youth groups, CBOs,
NGOs, Faith Based organizations (FBOs), etc.)
also register with us to access our services and
resources.
