Beacon of Hope Uganda is honored to announce the receipt of a grant award from Lions Club of Hamburg – Harburg in Germany, and the support goes directly to fund our Hope Mixed Farm and the Livestock project and the profits from the project will go to support vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty under our programs at The Hope Centre. The support came through with the support of our great partners howareyou– in Germany.
The grant award will allow BoHU to cover the cost of the livestock program and help the children we currently serve!
The key objective of the program centers on Building sustainability of the organization.
At Beacon of Hope Uganda we believe long term success begins and grows at the community level. With the intent of reducing donor reliance, we have introduced various projects aimed at raising an income for operational expenses of the school and the Hope Centre in general. We have introduced the livestock farm project, food growing project and other projects will be introduced soon. At the moment our sponsorship program provides funding to 100% of all school attendees
The livestock farm project will provide milk, food, eggs for the children and an income for the centre. This would allow The Hope Centre to embark on an income generating venture to bring a sustainable income to the school and in turn fully support the orphans and vulnerable children.
This farming project includes a chicken/egg production building that will house 500 chickens, a pigsty, a goat’s house, a heifer kraal and a caretaker’s room and a store. At the Hope Centre there will be a ready garden for a variety of vegetables to be harvested on a regular basis.
The surplus produce that will not go to feed the vulnerable and orphaned children will be sold in the local markets for additional provisions. This livestock farm initiative is a win-win situation because it will allow the children to enjoy a more nutritious and varied diet as well as a badly needed income to support other expenses from the school.
We are so grateful to our friends at howareyou from Germany
Thank you always our donors and supporters.
