    We help small-scale farmers improve soil fertility, cut down on their use of commercial fertilizer and pesticides, and form small business groups to pool labor, resources and produce for more efficient local marketing. During the past four years, Go Organic Africa has implemented a broad range of training programs to address the varied needs of the small-scale farming sector.

about us

Go Organic Africa is a Community Based Organization, (CBO) operating in Africa. It started in 2010 with its head quarters in Kabale, South Western- Uganda with the mission of improving household nutrition through consumption of diverse and nutritious foods.

The postal address of the Organization is; Go Organic Africa Organization, P.O Box 379, Kabale – Uganda- East Africa. The project was conceived by Alphonse Twinamatsiko, as the Project Director, to provide farmers with the skills and technologies in sustainable agriculture and organic farming.

Go Organic Africa is spreading like the wild fire to other parts of Africa, impacting small-farmers with the skills and knowledge of organic farming.

In organic farming, crops, meat and other food are produced without chemicals. Fertilizers, pesticides, growth hormones and antibiotics are forbidden.

Instead of chemicals, Go Organic Africa uses a lot of organic matter to give crops the nutrients that they need to grow. Clover, for example, has a lot of nitrogen in it and farmers use it to make the soil better. Manure from animals and compost are also used to enrich the soil. Rabbit urine is used as a pesticide.
