Dorcus Project Uganda (Pig Farm)

Leading with Integrity, Excellence and Compassion in bringing about restoration, motivation, empowerment, structure and diversity through different ethnic groups while affecting people in a life-giving way and enabling them to have a higher quality of life. A life of purpose, discipline and vision.

The state of Uganda shows that 97% of the widows are stripped or left with nothing because of the deadly expenses of AIDS, or the ignorance and greed of their relatives. With the orphans more than half of the population is under the age of 15, and vulnerable to a new wave of HIV/AIDS infection. This is where we want you to join us in helping these women and their children to get back to their original places.

These women when given a chance are ready to move in action. I was there this past winter and witnessed their hardships and high spirit. I decided to start a pig farm. I started with 5 sows and one male. Glory be to God we are moving to better things! I came back here to become their advocate. We need the money to be able to extend our farm to accomodate more pigs.  

We started with pigs because they are a great source of income in Uganda. They are also easy to care for and have a great turnover. One pregnant pig is $200. The cost of maintaining a pig a month is $20. In four months that pig will be able to produce approximately 8-10 piglets, and will be able to sustain a family financially.  As we continue in our endeavor to build our own premises. We need your help and support spiritually and financially.

We hope to improve our status to greater things through this project. please join forces and hands with us so that we can conquer this! We can help them through their devastation and help them rebuild again. Please join me and let us bring our sisters’ home to their loving Father through your act of love. Let us raise the awareness and the funds to support this project.

We have been doing a lot of work on our new farm. Forming and baking our own bricks to build additions to the farm. I've been coaching, teaching, and empowering the teachers that work at the newly built school in Kyboga. We have added a new chicken pen in our farm that is growing quickly. We must give thanks for all and to all that have helped out. God bless you !
