Team from The Giving Exchange meeting the piggery project beneficiaries
Currently Youth Partnership Uganda is implementing a piggery project in Kitholhu Sub County Kasese district, titled:Strengthening Household incomes through piggery production. Being funded by The Giving Exchange,(TGE) YPU has so far supplied over 66 piglets to aid families that were greatly affected by floods and landslides in May 2020 as a way to improve their household income and regain financial security through the implementation of individual pig farms. The program has benefited over 560 both direct and indirect beneficiaries. A memorandum of understanding has been signed with the Sub County Administration where the same project will be incorporated into the Parish Development Model and two VSLA groups has been formed under the same project. The project has resulted into owning a well-run pig farm that will help to eliminate the most dire needs: low household income, food shortage, and access to healthcare and education for the children over 60 households have been reached in two years.
