The contribution of the Heifer Project for Women Farmers in Mpigi District to dairy development in Uganda
An account is presented of the Heifer Project for Women Farmers (HPWF) which commenced in March 1987 in Mpigi district, in the sub-humid zone of central Uganda. The main aims of the project are to improve nutritional status of the farming community through increased milk yields, to supplement family income through milk sales, to increase crop productivity by integrating animals into smallholder farming systems, and to train women to be self-reliant.
