The Kasega Project was launched in February of 2008 in cooperation with Trinity Reformed Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. It serves as one model of economic development projects envisioned by CVT.
Kasega is located on the bank of the River Nile, but the village has no source of clean water. Like most rural Ugandan villages, Kasega has little economic opportunity apart from subsistence agriculture. Most of the villagers live in small mud huts with thatched roofs.
In Kasega, six acres were purchased for an agricultural project with funds provided by the Baltimore church. Villagers joined together to plant four acres of pineapples and construct a piggery for raising livestock. They will use the profits gained to support their families, perpetuate the business, and generate capital for more projects.
