Construction Begins

The piggery house is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of this month. The pigs will be stocked by the end of the month as well. The piggery will be managed by the centre’s staff and the proceeds from the sale of the pigs will be used to support the centre’s programs.

The centre’s director, Sister Sylvia Aketch, expressed her gratitude to the government for the grant and said that the piggery will be a valuable asset to the centre. She said that the piggery will provide the centre with a sustainable source of income and will help to improve the lives of the people with disabilities who are served by the centre.

The centre is committed to providing quality care and services to people with disabilities. The piggery will help the centre to achieve its goal of providing sustainable and independent living options for people with disabilities.
