The Mango Project, by fostering partnerships with local communities across various faiths and ethnicities, are empowering individuals with the skills and techniques necessary to preserve and sell produce. By increasing the local economy and improving nutrition, communities in the West Nile are able to remain in rural villages with new resources.
What We Are About
Mangos are an incredible, local source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron and many other critical nutrients. Through mango preservation, local communities now have access to nutritious mangos throughout the entire year even across 5 months of dry season. This micronutrient consistency helps to fight against malnutrition; which affects over 38% of children under 5 in Uganda.
By building the capacity of our grassroots partners and enhancing the local economy through mango preservation and sales, The Mango Project is committed to efforts of poverty alleviation for families and communities in the region.
