Summary

The projet will provide training to 200 single mothers in commercial pig rearing, marketing, and provide them a set of piglets to start business. Keeping pigs for 4 months will enable them to recycle to another member with a piglet to enable community transformation at once. Enabling women to be in control of their own development leads to real empowerment.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

People of northern Uganda are recovering from a 20+ year brutal insurgency, where for over a decade 1.5+ million people lived in IDP camps, facing violence, poverty and hopelessness. 90% of the women benefiting from Vac-Net's program lack skills and suffer from lack of adequate income to meet household expenses. Many families are still resettling in their villages of origin and trying to restore their livelihood after living in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps for more than a decade.

How will this project solve this problem?

Beneficiaries are trained, together with at least one other member of their household in basic livestock management and marketing, how to set up piggery housing structures then be given a set of 'Push me once Piglet)' to start business which comprises of one male and one female. The beneficiaries are expected to raise their livestock for 4 months until maturity. The project will provide 200 Push Once Piglet to women.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will train and empower over 200 single mothers, especially the former abducted, who lack skills and suffer from lack of adequate income to meet household expenses providing them the vehicle for social justice, women's economic empowerment and sustainable human development.
