John taking care
Started to provide a sustainable jump start to many vulnerable families in Gulu. The Push me once Project targets vulnerable families, through this Quarter Vac-Net has supporter more 8 eight Families by constructing more 8 Pen houses and distributing 8 pig seeds, on overage each family in Gulu has 7 members giving us 56 indirect beneficiaries in a Quarter this a big milestone in transforming our community in much more sustainable way pulling one family out of poverty at a time.
Our Goal this coming Quarter is to continue reaching out to the most vulnerable families in waiting with a seed to pull them out of poverty. We plan to construct more 8 pen houses and distribute more 8 pig seeds which continuously give us the same multiplier effect of 56 indirect benefices per quarter

John before joining the Push me once project was on street, and was fetching water for members in the community in return of getting paid ( 200 shilling) or Food for his family,
John and his Family received a pair of pig seed last year which John concentrated all his energies to taking care of the pigs.
“I was always admiring children going to school, but me and my sister were at home with our old grandmother, no one cared for us. The 2 pigs changed our life when our pig produced 9 piglets at once after feeding it for 6 month things changed in away I don’t know. Because at the beginning of the year both me and my sister started going to school for the first time, selling 5 pigs was enough to pay for school fees and buy food for us for some time. I feed our animals and love them; they are part of our life, if they continue producing our 2 sister who are not in school will join. I thank the office and Mego Joyce for constructing for us the house for pigs and giving us 2 pigs as I talk now we have given back 2 pigs to the office so that other members can get the opportunity God will bless you”
