Kumi Hospital farm

UIC ( Uganda Investment Corporation ) together with the Dutch Kumi Hospital foundation found a shape was under the approval of the Kumi Hospital Board to exploit the land under the name Kumi Hospital Agro Park. UIC is a group of Dutch entrepreneurs who set up projects in Uganda to promote the self-reliance of the population there. Consider, for example, importing tractors so that the land can be better cultivated and the yields and thus the self-reliance of the population increases. In addition, the Kumi Farm foundation would like to mention that the UIC is trading on a non-profit basis. Ultimately, this was designed in which it was roughly agreed that UIC may use the grounds of the farm to establish a profitable mixed company here in 10 to 15 years with the focus on milk products with the ultimate goal of making Kumi Hospital self-sufficient. When this job is done, UIC withdraws and is returned to those involved.

An Agropark was chosen because it has a number of aspects in which the environment can participate. This includes the cultivation of animal feed, human food and milk production.
Currently the project has 49 cows and the intention is to grow to 200 cows.
There is also yogurt production and cheese production is under consideration.
The project in Kumi also includes a bakery where bread is baked.
The bread is sold well in the area and the donuts are also very popular.
In addition, there is another project where bees are kept for the production of honey.

Uganda is a landlocked and fertile country with many lakes and rivers. Some 83% of the population live in rural areas and rely on subsistence agriculture. More than half live in poverty without reliable access to food, as despite Uganda’s good soil and favourable weather, there are many barriers preventing poor farmers making the most of the country’s growing economy.


UIC works with rural Ugandans to increase the value of their harvests through better farming practices and simple processing of any surplus they produce. We help them find ways of earning a living that are suited to their natural environment, so they can improve their lives without damaging the natural resources they rely on.
We also support rural communities so they can have more of a voice in shaping the policites that affec their lives.

Teso Region

Between the years 1986 - 1992, the Teso Region was economically and socially devastated by civil war as a result of rebellion and the dreaded cattle rustling by a hostile neighbouring nomadic tribe. Cattle keeping was the main economic substrate of this area. The Hospital was not spared either. The infrastructure, water pumping and carrying systems, buildings and Hospital equipment was looted or vandalized.
