80% of the youth in Kafumu community in Mpigi District have moved to the capital city Kampala to ride motorcycles also known as"bodaboda", 15% are idle due to lack of capital to start up businesses, 3% have been reported being involved in land wrangles with their parents, only 2 % have something to occupy them (Mountains of Hope survey 2013)


Mature pigs will be slaughtered for pork and brought to large markets for sale. 7% of the profits will be put in a Cooperative Bank to generate entrepreneurship and sustainability. When piglets are produced, they will be given to other community members as a revolving scheme thereby increasing the number of youth who benefit

Long-Term Impact

The project is initiated by the youth and the same members are involved in management, this level of involvement and participation of the group members is expected to enhance sustainability. Mountains of Hope in collaboration with the village veterinary officer will build capacities of the group in the management of the project including record keeping and financial management.
