“At least 50 of breeding bore goats, will be given out to 2339 of these breeds to Project Affected House Holds and we are optimistic that they will help these families in their livelihood restoration process” says Denis Mwesigwa, the livestock specialist at Living Earth Uganda
Prior to this, PAHs were mobilized and trained on proper management practices of these live stocks
“Most of our people (PAPs) were initially practicing traditional methods of animal rearing and they had challenges with extension and information advisory. We introduced improved varieties such as these breeds of goats to help them improve their returns and gave them the necessary training, mentoring and coaching to achieve maximum results”, says Moses Bogere, the Assistant Agronomist, Livestock.
