Piggery Farming in Uganda

One of the ways to provide food and money for the Children’s Village is through our piggery project in Uganda. We have other animals as well (read more about our goat herd project here), but pigs are a great animal because they are well adapted to farming and have a quick return. They don’t require expensive housing equipment and don’t require a lot of labor to raise. They can feed on a range of things, including the crops that are already being grown on the land. When it’s time for slaughter, they provide meat for those living in the village and the excess can be sold easily to provide funds for other needs and outreach activities.

If you are looking for a charity to support, Hands for an African Child is changing the scene for children without parents in Africa. To donate money to Africa, visit our
