This project wants to set up a rabbit multiplication, training and breeding Centre in Uganda. This training center will purchase atleast 100 cross breed rabbits to start with, build a rabbit hutch and buy some rabbit feed. This programme will specialize in breeding, multiplication and marketing of live rabbit, rabbit meat and other by-products.
Rabbit meat is the best white meat and demand for rabbit meat is increasing in the local market. Most of the five star hotels in Uganda are willing to introduce rabbit meat in their menus but the challenge has always been a constant source which could sustain the demand both locally and for the export market. Some of the hotelsame that had introduced rabbit meat on their menu can not get adequate supplies from farmers and are forced to remove it from their menu
The project will start production, sales and operations for a pilot project of one hundred giant rabbit breeds at the Mountains of Hope farm land, it will supply 100 giant breeders each of 2 different breeds. It will set up a training center to benefit youth and the enture local population where we have the Orphans and Vulnerable Children
Farmers will have access to the breeds, training and also information on rabbit farming locally. These same centers will serve as buying points for rabbits for marketing once production picks up. The centers will also undertake processing and packaging of rabbits by products for sale in both local and export market. The project will coordinate the establishment a rabbit breeder's network, with a view of promotion of commercial rabbit farming country wide
