25 – UGANDA – Food Security
Winnie fights for food security and self-sufficiency of the most impoverished, refugees and villagers in Uganda. In this country, refugees are given a small parcel of land upon arrival. But what does it mean when that land is depleted by years of green revolution and extreme climate change? Everyday she teaches hundred families on how to secure their access to food so they can survive and send their kids to school. She has also created more than 50 jobs for young people and women. A daughter of a single-mother small farmer, she knows, like no one, what food precocity means. Winnie believes in community resilience, female-farmers and permaculture.
« We have to give refugees the tools to survive in order for them to survive and keep hope. »
« I find love in helping out. »
