Summary

The business idea is to empower students/pupils with entrepreneur skills in poultry farming to enable them raise funds for supporting the financial challenges they face in obtaining quality education. The business products are universally acceptable organic products of the Kuroiler chicken spices. At least 20 hens and 2 cocks per student will be the business start-up kit. Eggs will be hatched and sold to help meet the student's financial obligations for sustainability and expansion purposes.

Challenge

Problem to be addressed will be enhancing financial stability and nutrition in formal education system to help improve the literacy rates of future generations. The Uganda Government introduced free education for all in 1997, which is credited for increasing school enrollment and Universal Secondary Education (USE) in 2007. However, the universal education package provides for teachers' salaries and the basic facilities, leaving out school meals an important factor to quality learning.

Solution

20 hens and 2 cocks per student will be the business start-up kit. Poultry cage rearing provides the student with a manageable system for learning the management of the bird and its eggs production with a less labour high yield farming as a business principle. Three-quarters of the eggs will be sold to help meet the student's financial obligations for sustainability and expansion purpose. The remaining fertilized eggs will be hatched and the chicks brood to give to others students.

Long-Term Impact

This innovation will create new young in-school entrepreneurial opportunities as small scale economic farmers, and resulting in positive household nutrition and economic change. The innovation is expected to provide direct communities with over 100 percent more meat and over 400 percent more eggs, in comparison to the indigenous poultry outputs. In economic terms, each direct beneficiary will see close to a three-fold increase in his/her income over a year.
