\r\n\r\n

The ESAU monitoring team visited the cattle rearing project run by the ESAU branch members of Kabulasoke and they found that;

\r\n\r\n

All group members have individual income generating activities that consist of arable farming and cattle rearing.

\r\n\r\n

The members are running a group project of cattle rearing in Luganga village. This group received funds in June 2016 from the government under the Special grant program for persons with epilepsy.

\r\n\r\n

The group received UGX 2,000,000 and the executive committee of the branch agreed to use the moneys to buy three cows at a rate of 600,000/= which they did in the same month.

\r\n\r\n

Members agreed that the cows will be taken care of by Mujabi Dauda, the treasure of the branch considering his experience in cattle rearing.

\r\n\r\n

The idea of buying cows was such that the members feed them very well and sell them for a higher amount of money and this money was to be used in buying some goats, distribute to a few members and when the goats deliver then the kids be distributed to the rest of the beneficiaries until every member of the group has got atleast a kid and/or a goat.
