Sample of the first version of the vertical farms made and manufactured by Women Smiles Uganda
Sample of the version two of the vertical garden by women smiles Uganda that can accommodate more than 500 plants
One of the training sessions by Women Smiles Uganda where women were taught about vermicomposting method of manufacturing manure
Soil Lab at Home prototype that is used by farmers to test for favorable conditions for farming
This project embarks on training women on how best they can use vertical farming mechanisms to earn a living and food for their families. We go on to train female on how to make composite manure from bio gradable wastes through use of vermicomposting.We also intend to reach 3500 women in 2023 with vertical farms compared to 880 women we reached in 2018. we also intend to extend our services to the whole country compared to now where we work in particular selected regions.By 2023 we intend to link more than 2000 women to operation wealth creation for improved seeds. we intend to partner with more than 20 financial institutions who will be giving out farms in form of loans to customers . At the end of the Day we intend to improve the food security of of over 2000 house holds .
Soil lab at home is an Artificial Intelligence system that uses the sensor technology to determine the amount of different physical, chemical, biological Properties of the soil and results got are sent to the farmers’ phone on a real time basis using Blue tooth technology.
The famer is required to avail five samples of the soil per acre (from the four corners of the land and from the middle of the farm).he will also be required to turn both the device ,Blue tooth and the Mobile application on his phone .
The pair will start communicating and exchanging information about the results and recommendation and this will be real time and presented to a famer in the local language.
I am Nakigozi Lillian a young female entreprenuer, founder of Women Smiles Uganda. I am a victim of fistula that's my mother suffered from prolonged labor, this was because the hospital was very far from our home
Secondly we didn't believe in giving birth from the hospital, my mother took long without giving birth and she spent a long time unattended to by a doctor which in the end caused fistula. After my birth, our father abandoned us after realizing that my mother had fistula, she was passing out a lot of urine which made my father tired and disgusted.
As if that was not enough, in the community where we were living my mother was discriminated referring to her as an outcast and blaming her for every problem that happened in our family
I was left alone with my mother but because she was a very strong lady she battled with fistula, she tried to visit the village health center for treatment but it wasn't there. She resorted to using local herbs to treat fistula unfortunately the local herbs made the situation worse and later on my mother died.
At her burial people blamed me for the cause of my own mother's death because she suffered from a prolonged labor during my birth. This tormented me so much and after seeing all the horrible situation my mother passed through, I pledged that i will help my fellow women to fight against fistula
Women are the caretakers in families, they take all the responsibilty when a child falls sick, as Women Smiles, we are a consortium member for CDARH that uses Artificial Intelligence that improves Immunisation services. To know more about this project visit this link
