Nest Literacy Project - Chicken Project for Sustainablity 

On the 10th of January 2020, a Foundations for Farming team visited Nest Literacy Centre to deliver 20 laying chickens to support the school as part of this Income Generation Initiative. Previously, the FfF trainers had built a chicken house to accommodate the 20 birds and delivered the chicken feed and supplements.The students from the school benefit from the project as they will learn how to rear chickens and make money from the eggs they lay. Dry spells and and difficulty in planting a maize crop have made the school's chicken project all the more important. 

There has been some change in staffing at the school and one of the teacher's we previously trained in Conservation Agriculture is now taking a lead. They will continue to share this knowledge with staff, students and the wider community. 

The Nest Literacy Centre, with our fundraising support is planning to place a water borehole on-site which would revolutionise thier conservation agriculture activities and create a far more sustainable future for the hundreds of students who attend this impoverished facility. 

Thank you.
