Orant Farm Plot and Field Day Demonstration
Every year in March, Orant invites hundreds of farmers and the local chiefs to our campus to review the different seeds and fertilizers that are available. We make important announcements regarding health and safety (COVID-19 in 2020) and perform skits that emphasize the importance of being a proactive farmer.
Local Orant-sponsored “lead farmers” guide other farmers throughout the year with advice and assistance.

We have been supporting the Bowe Mission Farmer’s Association (BOMFA) since Orant Charities Africa was founded. BOMFA is a farmers cooperative that organizes seed and fertilizer distribution to its farmers and helps them sell and transport their crops in bulk. BOMFA supports farmer clubs and contributes to building a more stable community.
FEM for Women
Our FEM for Women Program supports local women entrepreneurs with microloans. These loans financially empower women in the community and at home. Many of our members improve their family’s living situation and pay for their childrens’ schooling with their profits.
Orant sponsors and manages 14 irrigation clubs in our Kasese operations area. These clubs are supplied with the skills and supplies necessary to plant and harvest multiple crops per year, helping them develop prosperity and wealth.
