Spirit in Action Project
We have started implementing a project funded by Spirit in Action to mitigate the economic effects of climate-induced disasters in Kilembe, Kasese, Uganda. This area has been hit by recurring river floods that have caused the destruction of lives and property. The recurring climate change-induced disasters have led to a lowering in the livelihood of the local population.
This project has trained 25 families in goat and chicken rearing. Upon training completion, each family has been given a goat and three chickens to rear on a rotation basis. They shall be required to return one goat after their goat gives birth so that the new goat can be passed on to other equally needy families. This rotation sharing strategy is a sustainable way to ensure that more families benefit from the project over the years.
“Let’s put the training received today into practice for the success of this project and to ensure its sustainability.”Farkuku Maathe, the Project’s Focal Person and Executive Director of GLPC, said in the training of beneficiary families at Bulembia Dvision offices.
