Beginning project in near future

Community trainings hosted by Mountains of Hope
Community trainings hosted by Mountains of Hope

We are looking forward to beginning trainings on food security in the near future. So far, we have raised just $30, but once we have enough funds, we are very excited to start work on this pressing issue. Currently in rural Uganda, poor farming techniques degrade much of the soil, leaving it infertile for future growing seasons. By teaching farmers about crop rotation, mulching, digging draining channels and other improved techniques, we can help them dramatically increase their output. Additionally, many farmers aren't aware of how to save crops or funds for seasons when there are little output. We plan to teach them the business and planning skills needed to ensure they have enough income and food to last their families the whole year. Thank you for your ongoing support!

How this project is changing lives in Uganda

Hi,

It may surprise you to know that pork (pig meat) is the most widely consumed meat in the world, followed by chicken and beef. Surprised, right?

This is really interesting, inUganda alone, 75% of the population consumes pork, and yet there are few pig farms in the country, there fore venturing in piggery farming is venturing in real gold.

This project began small,and has started growing bigger, right now, it has employed 2 youth from the village where we operate, it has also supplied four piglets to 2 households to enable them boost their family income as well as cater for childrens school requirements.

Jane is a full-time housewife experiencing money troubles, she takes care of 5 children, 3 grand children and 2 belonging to her,she has benefited from 2 piglets to enable her begin piggery farming. She already had a pig house in place which she started with 1local piglet.

Starting with local pig breeds,Jane saw the potential and advantages of foreign exotic breeds and eventually asked us to support her with 2 from our farm. These exotic breeds could grow up to a size of 500kg (compared to only 20kg for local breeds) and sold for much higher prices on the market

Schools near by are using this farm to teach children how to real pigs as well as book keeping.

You are not only impacting children in a home, but also impacting the whole community when you give to this piggery project.

James is enjoying school

Thank you so much for enabling James ateend school regularly,

Your continuous support is making some one smile in Uganda, it has impacted so much on James, his mother and his community, when the term begins, they are now assured of him going back to school as compared to those days when they could go begging and at the end of the day did not succees at all.

James mother could brew beer for sale but the money was not even enough for his fees, scholastic materials as well as help them at home.

Some one in Uganda appreciates your help!!!
