We exist to end extreme poverty for Uganda’s children

We are contributing to ending extreme poverty by engaging communities in helping us select members of their community that are in the greatest need of support, identifying what resources the poor already have and are willing to contribute, identifying what the local government is willing to contribute, then providing one-time seed capital/livelihood assets and giving tailored skills and regular guidance, and life skills as well as helping selected participants to save through the business saving & loan groups.

What we do

We are working to end extreme poverty for Uganda’s children through building innovative women & youth led enterprises. We have adopted a proven solution, the poverty graduation model.

People who go through our program become successful entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities and build a brighter future for themselves and their families especially the children.

Our impact

The story of Ayaa: Her family could not afford school requirements, so she dropped out of school. Her story relates to over 2 million (45%) children who drop out of school in Uganda!

Tina, Ayaa’s mother, who lives in West Nile, Uganda, worked hard each day but could not support her family & afford a meal a day. She was selected to participate in our program where she received training, a one-time seed grant and cash stipend to meet basic needs. She started her business and receives regular technical support.

Where we work

GrainAid Agency works exclusively with people living in extreme poverty (people living on less than $1.90 a day).

We have deep roots in Uganda. We work in rural areas and the urban slums where most people live on $1.90 a day or less. We currently operate in the west Nile, northern Uganda and central region.
