The gardens at the Diocese of Liwolo office and the clinic in Arua offer the opportunity for them to become a little more self-sufficient, providing food and through the sale of their produce money and for them to practice the techniques they are sharing with the agriculture and savings groups and pastors.
The office is also running a poultry project and has sent us this report:
There are many benefits when you opt for poultry farming. There is no question why many farmers love to invest in this kind of technique. Here are just some of the reasons why you should engage in poultry farming.
The team have sold their first batch of broiler chickens and received their second, they are now making plans for the future…
We have been able to work on the poultry business plan, projected for two years, 2021 to 2022. In this period, we will be able to ascertain the viability of the project in terms of income per batch of chicks received and successfully sold. Then from this point, it would give us the liberty to expand the project (space and size of birds per batch).
The clinic has received some Avocado and Lemon plants from the agriculture team and report that the clinic market garden work is progressing on very well.
