Seeta Institute of Animal Production and Management (SIAPROM) evolved to offer first class practical animal production skills training so as to fight the high level of unemployment (80%) among the Ugandan youths. SIAPROM’s mission is to empower the youths mainly to sustain themselves through provision of cost effective and practical animal production and entrepreneurial skills training. SIAPROM has two main customer groups:
- the student’s youths on a two year Diploma programme
- weekend trainings for farmers/farm owners/herdsmen using its farm advisory and veterinary services as well as supply of veterinary inputs.
It is envisaged that a healthy and vibrant livestock industry in an agricultural country like Uganda has immense potential to increase youth employment, food security and eventually transform rural communities.
