Suubi Piggery Project
The piggery project is one of the livelihood-support programs currently running at Suubi Centre which is helping to improve the living standards of all those involved.
Initially ten piglets were distributed to critically selected families in the community and rolled out to other community members in the area. Recently the project has been fully revised and is now currently implemented at Suubi Secondary & Vocational College. Students have been provided with a female piglet with the expectation that two piglets will be passed back to the school from their first litter. This will enable the school to distribute them to future students or sell them off to raise money for other projects or things happening at school. Once the first recipient has passed on the two piglets to the next student, the mature pig, remaining and future piglets are solely theirs to keep. In this way we assume they will be able to generate an income to help pay their own school fees in future. Of course Suubi will always be there in an advisory capacity should they wish to access it.
Piglets are being distributed to students at SSVC to provide a means for students to help pay for their school fees.
This piggery project is truly providing students and their families with a way to support themselves into the foreseeable future.
