Recovery group project
The Recovery group in Bugobero, Uganda started in 2018, thanks to the efforts of Pastor Stephen, who travels widely visiting many communities.
During the first visit to the group in March 2018 the white ants were taking to flight as they left their nests. They are very good to eat, apparently; but they are not a commercial proposition.
Pigs less likely to fly
Pigs are much less likely to fly away, as well as more easily marketed; the breeding of pigs has been embraced by the Recovery group as a project to create wealth in their community.
The temptation to eat them rather than breed them will always be there, and formal agreement between group members is needed for breeding programs and marketing, as well as secure housing for sows and their litters, in a land with so many predators; often with two legs!
