According to Byiringiro, Gudie Leisure farm is to give out over 96 rabbits to 48 Agri-Clubs in different schools in Kisoro where each Club will be given only two rabbits.

Byiringiro said that one of the reasons for choosing rabbits is because they are easy and cheap to look after adding that Gudie Leisure farm will proceed to supply other white meat animals and train people how to rear them after the Rabbits project has made impacts.

He encouraged learners and other Youths that have not joined Agriculture clubs and other Parish entrepreneur planning associations (PELAS) to join and earn using their own hands.
