Summary

This project will purchase 20 hybrid Large White piglets for the orphanage and build a pig shelter on the orphanage land, this will help provide funding to run the orphanage other than relying on sponsorship. The children will learn to operate piggery farms, business, bookkeeping, but more-so ensure that on completing their stay with us that they will have the capacity to earn money as a result.The final hybrid pigs will be used for both pork and bacon production.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

90% of the orphanages in Uganda close down due to loss of sponsors, this leads to relocation of the children hence an end to their education, good health and joy, for the last 5 years, we have been relying on a few individual donors which also ended due to loss of their jobs. MoH is introducing a sustainable piggery business to help run the orphanage even without monthly sponsorship money.

How will this project solve this problem?

Mature pigs will be slaughtered for pork and brought to large markets for sale. 5% of the profits will be put in a Bank to generate entrepreneurship and sustainability. MoH will not need monthly sponsorship to run its day today activities as it will have income flowing in. When piglets are produced, the community around will be given piglets to rear on a revolving scheme thereby improving their economic status.Our kids will also enjoy the delicious rich in protein fried pork chops

Potential Long Term Impact

The project is to be managed by the Orphanage management committee, this level of involvement and participation is expected to enhance sustainability. The orphanage has two acres of land available for farming, this will be utilized for the project expansion.
