Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the social and economic condition of the youths living in remote barrios.
