Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the families of many pastoral staff in the rural villages were experiencing a crisis due to the lack of income. They were unable to put food on the table daily.
We wanted to step in to create a sustainable way to provide for these families. We worked closely with the local church to provide training to 10 pastoral staff from 4 different provinces. During the training, they were taught how to vaccinate and raise healthy chickens in a sterile environment. They were also taught on the types of chicken feed and how to build the cages.
The pastoral staff were all given 8 healthy chickens each to start the farming project. When the project takes off, they will continue to teach their church members how to do so.
