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:

  1. Improving farm productivity through; the establishment of practical dairy training farms, support on-farm investments, strengthen cooperatives and improve dairy services to farmers.
  2. Improve milk quality through the introduction and promotion of quality based payment systems.
  3. Improve regulation and investment facilitation.
  4. 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 fifth year is creating tangible results, having developed a number of relevant products and services for dairy farmers, delivered by the private sector.
