Livestock Project Funding in Uganda

Requested by

Hope Initiatives Organisation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The war in Northern Uganda in the last decade brought untold suffering to the people and the people in the North are still suffering since they are still resettling in their homes and recovering from the past events of the war.

Their stories were not good to hear. Among the atrocities committed were houses, school, and other privates and public properties, the scared believes of the people burnt, destroyed, vandalized and looted.

The very essence Hope initiatives was formed is to intervene to alleviate the communities’ dire needs.

The project package also serves as a means of replacement of lost livestock. Since the farm families lack funds and alternative resources to purchase them, this will give back livestock to the participants who have lost everything in life.

To enhance animal production units that provide livelihood for the target population.

The interventions will be aimed at; food security and nutrition improvement of the target beneficiaries and developing sustainable markets for urban agriculture outputs.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project is livestock rehabilitation for 500 farm families in Kitgum district, northern region Uganda.

The goal of the project is to improve the livestock level of 500 farm families in five (5) communities in Kitgum district.

To help provide 500 farm families with livestock (cows, goats, sheep and pigs) to restart and ensure diversified production by January 2014

To reduce malnutrition and increase livestock cows, goats, sheep and pigs available for 500 farms families.

Project will as well increase household incomes which help as food security and poverty alleviation program for the community involved in the project. Besides, the people in the operational communities are peasant farmers who have been involved in all their lives in livestock (cows, goats, sheep and pigs). The technology is not new, it part of the way of life of the people.

The people are familiar with the raising of cows, goats, sheep and pigs and the breeds that would be selected and bought are suited to the areas.

Also cows, goats, sheep and pigs are easy to raise involving little or no cost and use of locally available materials for food and housing which ensures continuity needs external support.
