SEND A GOAT UGANDA

Published on July 30, 2021 um 19:18

Explain your idea in details:

According to estimates by ministry of animal industry and fisheries in Uganda there is 13.5 million goats from 3.5 million in 1990, the challenge is that most farmers cannot distinguish the various breeds leading to in-discrimination of cross breeding and reducing the intended benefit (published in New Vision 13th May 2019). For instance NGOs like USAID,World Vision and others has been giving out goats to local farmers,vulnerable families in Uganda however they are not given the opportunity tap the knowledge of rearing goats for commercial purposes.local breeds take between 1 to two years to reach maturity,improper feeding,crossbreeding,poor housing and treatment is challenging farmers. Send a Goat Uganda is an Agri-social enterprise aimed at improving household income through sustainable Goat farming to local farmers,vulnerable families and people with Disabilities through sustainable goat farming. The initiative is going to be a subsidiary of Mulenzi modern goat farm located in Rakai district

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Mulenzi modern goat farm enterprise is located in Rakai district in central Uganda deals in goats,sheep rearing and vegetable growing offering meat,milk, quality breeds , community training in modern goat farming practices and producing fertilizers from the manure.We are coming with an initiative send a goat Uganda that will see the provision of sustainable goat farming skills to local farmers, vulnerable families and people with disability to increase their household income from rearing goats.The initiative will target local farmers,youth, rural and semi-urban inhabitants who can rear goats by equipping them with skills in goat farming such as simple goat house construction,proper feeding,treatment,quality breeds and market for their produces. The intended beneficiaries who will be eligible throughout Uganda,East Africa and Africa will access our service at an affordable fee either at our farms,at community centers and also online training. We hope to have the largest Goat farming platform offering our services online.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We are introducing dairy goats for milk production and also increase our breed quality to70% Boer and savanna to boast maturity rate. In the next five years we shall purchase a 30 acre land within Rakai and rebrand ourselves with a multi-million goat farm site with the best training facilities.

Partner with NGOs and Government entities to offer internship and community training on modern farming.

Your idea is great.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: The Fear of Failure.

Great idea from a great mind. Goat rearing is a sector in animal husbandry that has been highly neglected, picking up the challenge to change the narrative is commendable.

Looking at the vulnerability of ugandans and the need to improve Agricultural products this idea has potential to scale on the Agricultural productivity in the country.

Agriculture being the back bone of Uganda economy sustainable farming is a priority Great idea All the best.

Tony is very young boy with full of vision and idealogy hard work deaf guy who believe in himself to bring change to the community with the passion service.
I believe everything are possible with him but lacked finance to inject in his mega international project.

A VOTE FOR SEND A GOAT UGANDA,
I had the chance to see your earlier entrepreneual projects small as they were (Rabbit farming,book making) yet you aimed at sharing ideas with others around you. I had the opportunity to be part of a mentorship project that brought together many University graduates to address the employment gaps in the disability community during which your depth of knowledge always stood out,it's no surprise that you (Tony Mulenzi) with your associates coined up this very appealing project idea that not only benefits you alone but a large community. It is such a well thought project backed with statistical facts from the past, well defined end product and undeniably realistic and achievable projections.
I HAVE THE PLASSURE TO RECOMMEND YOUR INTIATIVE TO WHOEVER IS KIND ENOUGH TO IT THE MUCH DESERVED ATTENTION AND SUPPORT. GOOD LUCK @ Send a Goat Uganda.
