AGWE - Empowering Women in Piggery keeping and management for poverty alleviation in Kachabule Village
AGWE is a February, 2018 Seedlings of Change (SoC) mini grant recipient of $500. USD for their Piggery Project!
After training the beneficiaries with the skills and knowledge on piggery keeping, AGWE helped them build piggery shelters where the piglets will be kept.
AGWE purchased 20 piglets for 20 beneficiaries and 8 for the demonstration farm. Each direct beneficiary was given 1 piglet with skills and knowledge they gained during the training event. (See the photo slide show)
This project empowers women through acquiring knowledge and management skills in piggery raising.
The piglets have started maturing/growing very quickly and AGWE hopes that by the end of this year they will be pregnant and produce more piglets which will be given to additional beneficiaries in the community AGWE operates in to increase on the multiplier effect for sustainability of the project.
AGWE has run a deficit budget of $310, USD AGWE is requesting SoC to fund this additional deficit amount to enable the AGWE project to meet their goals and objectives as this project has begun showing signs of success.
