The project will provide 220 out-of-school youths with 10 ducklings each and feed supply good for 5 months in order to provide continuous supply of eggs for the family to increase their nutrition and well-being. Some of the eggs to be hatched in order to increase their stocks and at 18 months of laying, the ducks are culled and the meat either for sale or to be used as meat by the family.
Out-of-school youth living in remote barrios are often poor and have little chances in life. They do nothing whole day and are prone to exploitation and abuse. There is a need to provide them with low cost and easily managed livelihood activities in order for them to be productive and make use of their time.
Ducks are easy to raise. At 6 months, the ducklings will start to lay eggs daily and the eggs can be a source of income and nutrition for the family. Some of the eggs are hatched in order to increase the stock and to replace those culled which will be used by the household or sold to neighbors.
Improvement in the social and economic condition of the youths living in remote barrios.
