About the #FeedKaramoja Project

The Problem

  • Food insecurity has been a recurring problem in Uganda, with the Karamoja region experiencing acute food insecurity. In 2022 alone, World Food Programme reported 361,000 people in Karamoja as affected by the food crisis resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and high food prices.

  • The districts of Kaabong, Kotido and Moroto are registering the highest malnutrition levels at 18.6%. Severe drought and hunger have escalated and have led to deaths of mostly the elderly. Savannah Foundation calling is upon citizens from around the world to raise funds that will be used to purchase food items for families in Karamoja.

Our Solution

  • Emergency Phase


  • We have identified 100 households with 5-7 family members for the first phase of donation with each household consuming food items worth UGX 260,000 (USD 70) per month. The food provided is dry ratio foods that include maize, millet and soya flour, beans, sugar, salt and cooking oil.

  • Long Term Initiative


  • Having attended to the emergency need, Savannah foundation will proceed to a campaign that will equip natives of the Karamoja region with best farming practices for semi-arid areas to address food insecurity in the long term.
