In October 2015, SNV Uganda signed a partnership agreement with the Netherlands Embassy Uganda to implement a dairy project in South Western Uganda. The goal of the five year project - The Inclusive Dairy Enterprise is to improve dairy farm incomes for 20,000 farmers in the districts of Bushenyi, Isingiro, Kiruhura, Mbarara, Ntungamo and Sheema by addressing the following:

  • Improving farm productivity through; the establishment of practical dairy training farms, support on-farm investments, strengthen cooperatives and improve dairy services to farmers
  • Improve milk quality through the introduction and promotion of quality based payment systems
  • Improve regulation and investment facilitation
  • Improve household nutrition by; supporting the introduction of milk in schools and promoting dietary diversity at household level

The project which is now in its third year is creating tangible results, having developed a number of relevant products and services for dairy farmers, delivered by the private sector.
