Piggery project

This project is part of the Pwani Hope School project:

The aim of the project is to raise income for the school in order to ensure sustainability of school operations but also imparting knowledge and awareness to the villagers of proper rearing of pigs as a project of supporting their livelihood. The school will also use pig manure for generation of bio gas which will reduce school cocking costs and cut down carbon emissions and also providing natural manure for the crops of the school farm.

The amount needed for buying one piglet (including injections) is € 50.

Soroti Youth Carpentry Skilling Project

Through the partnership with True Grasses, OM Switzerland has been supporting the Soroti Carpentry Skilling Project in Uganda. We are grateful that they have supported the project with finances that was used to purchase carpentry tools to ease work at the workshop. Thanks to Ernst and his team, with their continued trust and heart to this project, the project now trains a couple of youth on hands-on skills and employs five people permanently.




With the school project being in progress, True Grasses has been incurring a lot of costs in hiring transport and using local taxis for its work in Kisarawe villages and Dar es Salaam city. Now with the purchase of a motorcycle (piki piki), transport costs will be reduced by 50% for school construction supervision. Thanks again to our committed donor from the Netherlands who gave towards the project.



Piggery & Poultry

Community Builders Canada and Anhart Foundation Canada, through the Pay-it-Forward program gave True Grasses various micro credit grants to help the people in Kilimanjaro Region. Eric and Ernst were selected by the local church and both received two piglets each. Amba received a grant to enhance her poultry business. With this they will start a journey to self sufficiency as they create jobs for themselves and increase their household incomes. All will be monitored with the help of MCF church in Moshi. 


TG Kilimanjaro Office

Since 2014 True Grasses has been operating at a home office. As it is an NGO requirement to have an outside office, True Grasses has acquired two rooms that will function as the True Grasses office on the MCF church compound. The rooms needed renovations before being able to enter and this was made possible through the gifts that True Grasses Foundation in the Netherlands, CBG and Anhart Foundation gave to True Grasses. The offices are located on Shirimatunda - Arusha Road in Moshi Town. Now all country activities will be carried from out here.
