FIGHTING HUNGER AND POVERTY THROUGH REVOLVING LIVESTOCK
TARGET GROUP: POOREST OF THE POOR HOUSEHOLDS
The project was implemented during the past 6 months. The project targeted 30 poorest of the poor households in two Sub Counties of Busiriba and Karambi in Kamwenge and Kabarole Districts respectively.
The project was supported by the Jamison family and their family friends in Indiana and Ottawa Illinois. The project aimed at providing poorest of the poor families with opportunities to begin income generating projects, improving farm productivity and food security at household level. It also entailed motivating rural active-poor women to participate more meaningfully in strengthening their household’s economic status and communities. By the end of the day, our hope is that the beneficiaries will have increased income from livestock, promote community solidarity, cohesion and sustainability through the process of revolving and sharing livestock.
