This project will buy 50 dairy goats for Kyaninga Dairy, which is producing delicious goats cheese, to generate much needed income for Kyaninga Child Development Centre to become more self-sustainable and continue to provide life changing therapy and rehabilitation to children living with disabilities in western Uganda.
Children with disabilities living in western Uganda previously had no access to therapy and rehabilitation before Kyaninga Child Development Centre was established 2 years ago. Since then more than 450 children and their families have benefitted from the specialist physio, occupational and speech therapy services, provided in their homes, schools and community health centres, changing lives, giving independence, inclusion and understanding where previously there was fear, neglect and isolation.
Kyaninga Dairy is a project to make and sell fresh goats' cheese from our farm, with all profits directed towards supporting KCDC, so that it can become more self-sustainable and not rely on grants and donors. With the help of experts from the UK we are already producing small amounts but we desperately need more milk to boost production to where can supply meaningful quantities for sale. This means more goats, and we are hoping to raise enough money to add 50 goats to our herd.
With a herd of 50 goats, we will be able to produce enough milk and cheese to sell in select stores and markets within Uganda, and the profits will be able to support an additional community rehab team, reaching more children with disabilities who currently have no access to rehabilitation, support or hope for the future. A contribution to our Kids 4 Kids campaign is a great contribution the centres continued sustainability.
