True women empowerment programs we aim to build social support for the children who are still under the care of their mothers knowing that empowering the mothers is one way of sustaining a child's well-being.
Why Acholi Quarters?
Acholi Quarters are mainly for people affected by the adverse effects of war in Northern Uganda. Located in the outskirts of Kampala is an almost-forgotten community. The Acholi Quarters, like many other slums in Uganda is a community of mostly single mothers.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY MODEL:
One of our major income-generating activities of choice is poultry production. We are setting up a poultry farm whose products we shall sell and reinvest in the project, and the remainder will go to other activities. We are looking at poultry because it is one of the easiest yet most profitable community short-term Investments with a high return on investment (ROI)
Like poultry animal husbandry is one of the key income earners in this region. Given the fact that Uganda is an agricultural nation, most of the byproducts are used to boost production of another product; so, animal husbandry ranks high on the agenda of income-generating activities which will enhance our self sustenance.
