ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to find out the contribution of coffee growing on household’s economic welfare and development, a case study of Bushenyi district Local Government. The objectives of the study were to assess the contribution of coffee growing to the Health status of the people in Bushenyi District, to find out whether coffee growing has contributed to the education level and to establish whether coffee growing has improved on people’s employment and income in Bushenyi District. The study used both primary and secondary data in its analysis and the researcher used descriptive modes of analysis using mainly quantitative methods of data collection to capture data. Data was collected using research questionnaires where the researcher was asking the questions on the questionnaire and noting down the respondents’ answers. The findings revealed that the growing of coffee has enabled the farmers to improve their standards of living since they earn money from the sale of coffee that has enabled farmers to pay school fees for their children in institutions of higher learning. The production of coffee has created employment opportunities to the people in the district especially the youth who are working on the small scale coffee factories in the area and because of this coffee has become the sole source of income to many people in this area. The researcher recommended that the Government should increase on the budget allocation on agriculture since most of the rural people depend on agriculture as their sole economic activity. This will improve on the economic welfare and development of rural people, Government through the Ministry of Trade should look for international market for Uganda’s coffee as this will improve on the prices of Uganda’s coffee and the incomes of the rural people which will give farmers ability to pay school fees for their children.
