IRDS did a survey of children with disability & found hundreds of children with disability found. Their mothers are forced to look after their children besides making their income to their families. However they can not move away from their house as they have to look after their special children and also follow the therapist' advice to keep the children as per the training inputs. They chose to go for country poultry backyard keeping activities to make income & look after their children as well.


This project will solve the problem of lack of income to 45 mothers by supporting them with proper training, inputs, and seed money to purchase 20( 18:2) chicks each to put up backyard country poultry keeping activities. They will get nutrition ( eggs, meat) and also income by selling the poultry proceeds to the customers and also the traders who look after country indigenous birds as people prefer country indigenous birds to take and also to get eggs.

Long-Term Impact

45 mothers and their special children will have regular income to their families besides nutrition, from the country indigenous birds keeping activities. Their know how on the successful country poultry keeping activities will be strengthened with updates with the help of the veterinary specialists. Each mother is expected to make $ 2.50 per day from this project activities. They will find their situation to look after and train their special children with the help therapists will be better .
