Sustainability is a buzz word in the aid industry. We do great work and our vision is that these projects would transform the community for generations to come. But how do you ensure that this work will be sustainable in the long-run when you are dependent on the generosity of donors? This is a big question all us working in the aid industry wrestle with.
At URF, we are focusing our attention to designing and implementing income-generating ventures to work toward the above goal. In February 2013, we completed building a pig pen in collaboration with students from the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University in Minnesota who funded the project.
The project is running smoothly and number of pigs is multiplying.
