Your donation helped 05 youth to boost the youth piggery project, every penny counted-as a result we have purchased 15 piglets, we have paid the veterinary doctor to treat the pigs for five months and also purchased little feed to begin with, the youth are very ambitious and have already partnered with the nearby school in this project, they have secured a bank account to enable them keep the savings. As reported in the last report, again with the assistance of pig waste, youth also will be able to grow the vegetable. Other vegetables and a banana plantation have also been established with hopes of selling the products at a local market.
“We are very grateful for the support” narrates Leonard a youth group leader
After realizing that the piggery project is a sustainable income generating project, Mountains of Hope Children’s Ministries has also adopted the same approach and has started to embark on the construction of the piggery house, we intend to start with 20 hybrid piglets to be kept in the orphanage land, with this, the project will be able to run its activities and take care of the children even without sponsorship monthly donations which are also unreliable, to donate to this sustainable piggery project click here: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/set-up-a-hybrid-piggery-project-for-kids-in-uganda/
Thank you for donating towards our youth piggery project recently, as a result, we have already held a two days’ workshop to continue teaching them about piggery management, the nearby school which will be one of the beneficiaries indirectly also sent representatives, the school has provided a wheel barrow to facilitate the piggery project, the youth have purchased a spray pump for spraying the pigs to avoid diseases, a plastic water tank for water storage. High breed piglets will be purchased as they grow fast hence good results realized fast.
The focus of the workshop discussed selection of stock, pig disease and control, and use of pig-waste. They participated in a visit to a farm that currently raises pigs, so the youth could witness firsthand how the farm is properly managed. With the assistance of pig waste, youth also will be able to grow the vegetable. Other vegetables and a banana plantation will also been established with hopes of selling the products at a local market. Of the fifteen piglets we will be purchasing as parent stock, they will be kept in a joint farm.
Globalgiving will disburse funds on 25th of this month, we will send you update pictures of the piglets when we purchase them
