Towards achieving an empowered and self-reliant small-scale farmer - especially women

Eastern and Southern Africa Small-scale Farmers’ Forum (ESAFF) was formed in an effort to create a Forum to bring together small scale farmers into a social movement to influence for favourable agriculture policies and practices at
global, continental, regional, national and local levels.


Since formulation, ESAFF Uganda has become the largest small-scale farmer-led advocacy movement in Uganda with a membership of 12588 small-scale farmer community organisations in 54 districts.


ESAFF Uganda is also part of a bigger network of small scale farmers in the other 15 countries in eastern and southern Africa. ESAFF Uganda is also part of La Via Campesina (LVC) which is the largest peasant organisation in the world.

We are the largest small-scale farmer-led policy influencing movement in Uganda
