The objective of this dairy production and management project is to establish a sustainable source of income that can support Healing Children's School and Vocational Centre so that there is reduction or no financial dependence on donors. In addition to being a self-sustainable income generating enterprise, the project will create a source of milk for supplementing children's diet, generate biogas for cooking and lighting at the school, and will create a demo site for the school and the community. The Schools current income entirely depends on grants from donors which is not enough to sustain the financial needs of the institutions. In addition, the school lacks a steady and reliable source of protein rich food to supplement children in their diet. Therefore, there is a need to create a sustainable source of income and protein rich food to the institutions.
The investment in the project has been estimated at an initial cost of UGX 46,668,780 ($16,800 CDN) of which UGX 31,872,000 ($11,460 CDN) is the initial capital investment and UGX 14,796,780 ($5,340 CDN) are the recurrent costs needed for the first 1 year to break even. This enterprise has been projected to break even in the second year of operation and thereafter generate a net income of not less than UGX 30,253,220 per year.
