Summary

Tens of thousands of war widows and wives of the missing have been forced to become the primary income earners. Even after 10 years since the end of the war several families in the war affected areas are still in need of assistance to generate a steady income stream. The "Chicken Farm project" will be a self-help project as a means of income-generation and self-sustenance. The initial phase of this project is to help 25 families to get established with this income generating stream.

Challenge

Several modestly middle class households were pushed below the poverty line aftermath of the war due to lack of infrastructure. Sadly several households are still unable to establish a steady stream of income generation due to lack of support programs through local channels. In addition to providing the financial assistance we need to educate & monitor the recipients to make sure the project is managed efficiently so that the income generation is achieved within a reasonable time frame.

Solution

The project will provide the infrastructure, necessary education and train the recipients of the funds to sustain meaningful long term employment. Our strategy is to jump-start and provide assistance to reach maximum return with guidance from local expertise. The beneficiaries of this project will be provided assistance during each phase of the project so that they can educate themselves towards developing a steady income stream and and provide dairy products to local markets at a fair price.

Long-Term Impact

This project will uplift the war-affected Tamil households, particularly the single parents or households headed by war widow in the earmarked region. The project is targeted towards families who are struggling to obtain access towards long term income generating opportunities. This assistance will help prevent the deterioration of war ravaged communities and help the stabilization of the war-destitute.
