HOJEF runs a piggery project to generate funding and sponsorship for children. The project is also used as a case study during self reliance and entrepreneurship training.
The majority of pigs in Uganda, as in many other Sub-Saharan African countries, are produced by a large informal sub-sector, with limited access to technology information and services. This applies to all actors of the value chain, including farmers, traders, butchers, and retailers.
Piggery farming can be raised in controlled or free environment, as a small- or large-scale business. But in whatever size, a prospective farmer would need inputs as to how to raise pigs efficiently and in a more productive manner.
Poultry can provide additional income to the generally resource-poor small families, especially women. Although requiring low levels of inputs, it contributes significantly to food security, poverty alleviation and ecologically sound management of natural resources. Poultry is also a source of employment for underprivileged groups in many local communities. However, constraints facing poultry include poor management conditions and poorly developed marketing structures for the products. However, HOJEF is working hand in hand with families to help them benefit from the activity. You can donate to promote income generating projects. By doing so, you are contributing to sustainable development.
