Uganda National Farmers Federation (UNFFE) is the largest private sector, farmer-based, umbrella membership Non-governmental Organization (NGO) in Uganda (and one of the largest in East and Central Africa) which advocates for, lobbies and articulates farmers’ developmental issues and programs. Its activities reach grassroots farming communities in all corners of the country.
The membership of UNFFE is made up of over 90 independent associations of farmers, agro-industrialists and agro-commodity dealers. Individual membership to these associations is over 1,000,000 people country-wide of whom about 40% are women. It is a constitutional requirement for all UNFFE member Associations to have at least one third of the leadership consisting of female leaders. The biggest batch of membership is made up of about 70 District Farmers Associations (DFAs) which are spread in the Northern, Eastern, Central and Western regions of Uganda, thus giving the Federation a uniquely national status and representation. Twelve (12) of those DFAs are headed by women as Chairpersons and several Vice-Chairpersons.
