Who We Are
To develop agricultural knowledge and enthusiasm among youth and smallholder farmers to develop communities to be both nutritionally food secure and economically empowered.
What We DoField of Hope is a Christian non-profit dedicated to agricultural education and extension. Agriculture is the backbone of Uganda and developing countries across the globe, yet most involved in agriculture have received a low quality education about the processes and materials required to produce enough food for themselves and their families. That’s where Field of Hope steps in.
Field of Hope believes in life transformation for both the people we work with and for the people who would like to partner
with us. If you would like to share your time, your talent, or your treasure, please contact us and let us know in which area
you would like to be involved.
Field of Hope works to achieve our mission through three channels, or pillars: Youth Agricultural Education, Smallholder Farmer Advancement, and Leadership Development. Through these pillars, we feel that reach audiences of every generation and every walk of life. From there, we are dedicated to standing with individuals and groups to advance agriculture and impact their lives.
Youth Agricultural Education
We hope to equip the next generation of agriculturists in developing countries with the skills and abilities to successfully operate their agricultural enterprises.
Smallholder Farmer Advancement
Field of Hope is working to educate and encourage smallholder farmers in northern Uganda through agricultural
and financial means.
Field of Hope recognizes that we ourselves cannot change the world, but together with other invested partners, we believe we can create transformation and have
a lasting positive impact.
