Promoting youth employment Creation through provision of Infrastructural and technical support in Livestock production
Project Launch: 4-20-22
Associated Center for Agro-based Development and Entrepreneurship Support (ACADES) will partner with Gaba Youth Club in a project that is aimed at empowering the youth in Msundwe village, Lilongwe district. Using a $4, 998.46 grant from World Connect, the youth will set up a commercial pig production and processing site where they will raise pigs, slaughter and process pork into well cut steak and ribs and later sell to final consumers. The revenue generated from the project will be shared among the members and also reinvested into the project to ensure sustainability. Additionally, participants will use the manure to improve the agricultural production of their crops.
Project Update: 10-13-22
ACADES and fifteen members of GABA circle are progressing well in their project to construct a pig pen, now 60% done. The project is remaining with completion of walls, plastering, roofing and flooring, provision of training and procurement of pigs, which will all be done by 31st December 2022. The project aims at impacting at least 45 youth, as such they are still recruiting participants as the project goes.
