Support 200 vulnerable poor women to become entrep



It's evident that in most communities in Uganda, women constitute the biggest percentage of the poor people yet they have a responsibility to ensure the welfare of the family members at any cost. In an effort to fend for themselves majority of the poorest women are engaged in subsistence poultry production. Apart from the impression given to the observers, for sure they don't make any income; instead poultry keeping to them has become a menace to the other farming activities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Community surveys have revealed that over 90% of the newly hatched chicks in rural communities die in the first 3 weeks because of poor brooding skills and management. This does not only waste their time waiting for the eggs to hatch but also a loss of the eggs which could have been sold though at a cheaper price.

How will this project solve this problem?

Supporting 200 women to learn the brooding skills and management of the chicks can save thousands of birds that die before the maturity stage. This project therefore shall facilitate 200 women to construct a communal brooder where they will bring their chicks immediately after hatching, brooded for four weeks, vaccinated and then taken at the time when they can care for them. They will continuously be followed up for technical support.

Potential Long Term Impact

Increased house hold income level as a result of chicken sells Improved standards of living and ability to meet the basic needs Accessibility to nutritious food items like eggs and chicken Enhanced capacity to take care of day old chicks to maturity.
