AAH Uganda in partnership with European Union is implementing a livelihoods project with the main objective being Enhancing Local Capacities for Self-Reliance in Kyangwali (Hoima District), Bweyale and Mutunda (Kiryandongo District) areas in Uganda. The three year project now on its second year has created great impact on refugees and host community members in terms of improving their livelihoods. This has been done through training of farmers, providing them with farm inputs like seeds, animals, and tree seedlings as well as training in marketing and enterprise development.
Both refugee and host community farmers received Boar goats from Action Africa Help Uganda.
The Country Director of AAH Uganda, Dr. Nelson Wajja was present at the giveaway ceremony. While speaking to the farmers, he informed the farmers that it was a fulfillment of one of the project objectives which is to provide critical inputs. He also asked the farmers to use the skills which they acquired in animal husbandry to build themselves.
“Goat rearing is one of the projects that can bring quick income to a homestead," Wajja said. "So make sure you use this opportunity as a life changing moment in your homes."
