With nearly a billion people reported by the UN (2014) to be going to bed hungry every day, the global hunger challenge cannot be overstated. As a result of chronic malnutrition, the World Health Organization reports that one in four kids mainly in developing countries are stunted, impairing future productivity of entire generations. These issues are at the heart of why we have developed the Farm for a Cause™ program.
Farm for a Cause™ is Epicob Agriculture's corporate citizenship vehicle through which we partner with individuals and institutions who care about equitable food distribution and ending global hunger, especially among children. The program operates on a unique model in which we leverage our agricultural production capabilities, volunteerism and philanthropy to produce and deliver food aid to child-headed families and nonprofits working towards ending hunger globally.

Epicob Agriculture is an agricultural production service. We grow crops and raise livestock on our clients' behalf. Therefore, please note that the funds you invest with us are NOT a deposit that's available on-demand, a purchase of equity or debt. Although comprehensive agricultural insurance is available for field crops and livestock in our custody, your deposits are not insured by Bank of Uganda or any other financial institution. As with all other investments, your portfolio with us may gain or lose value as commodity and/or input prices fluctuate, or as a result of adverse weather events that are outside our direct control. Please review our literature or interact with our Customer Services Group via live chat, phone or email for more information on how agricultural production and investing works.
