USA-based NGO funds Boama project
First Peoples Worldwide (FPW), a non-governmental organization in the United States of America (USA) has provided funding for the Falu Rural Integrated Development Association (FRIDA) in the Boama Chiefdom, Bo District.
According to the National Programme Manager, Mr. Max John Harding, the donation is for the construction of a piggery consisting of eight (pens), a store, and an abattoir along the Old Railway line at Falu in the Korgeh Section of the chiefdom.
Speaking to SLENA upon the receipt of the donation last week, Mr. Harding said the implementation of the piggery project which is already on course, involves the reconstruction and a re-stocking project which aims at addressing the problem of protein deficiency and the provision of meat and cash for the community.
The building, which will be completed soon, will be restocked later in June this year, starting with two cows and five boars to commence the process of regeneration, said the programme manager.
Giving a background to the Falu project, Mr. Harding said it came about following an assessment done mid last year when the need to revive the piggery component of FRIDA was realized.
It could be recalled that the animal component of the project including buildings were destroyed during the eleven year war, a situation that did not only result in reducing the socio-economic status of farmers but also created the problem of protein deficiency in people within the community.
