About

We are MBADIFA Farming is Business to us

Mbarara District Farmers’ Association is a Non-Governmental membership organisation which was formed and registered in 1998. It is affiliated to the Uganda National Farmers’ Federation (UNFFE) in Kampala. MBADIFA was born out of the need to address insufficient governmental agricultural extension and advisory services, marketing issues, and lack of a common voice for farmers of Mbarara district. In 1997, as a result of decentralization, MBADIFA was established and separately registered with the government as an NGO, and affiliated to UNFFE – Uganda National Farmers’ Federation for the benefit of legal and operational recognition. MBADIFA has worked with and received support from development partners like DANIDA, IVA, TRIAS, Farm Africa, PSFU-BUDS, ACDI/VOCA, aBi Trust, GIZ and FINCA to implemented various programmes aimed at improving food and income security of the farmer members in Mbarara District through trainings, experiments and demonstrations. The organisation has functional democratic structures whereby the farmers assemble at parish level to elect Parish Executive Committees(PECs) Or form groups which then send delegates to the District Assembly where they elect the District Executive Board (DEB). The DEB is charged with the responsibility of running the organization through a District Secretariat of employed staff.
