Poultry Farming with Women Groups

Last fall was pretty interesting and amazing as we have founded an income generating project for the women group from Sangachok, Sindhupalchok. The post earthquake and tremor hit Sindhupalchok severely. Almost all the villagers’ livestock has been buried under the rubble due to the massive earthquake.  However, they managed their temporary shelters unfortunately nothing was left over for day to day work.

We set up a poultry farm and handed over with 300 chickens to the group. They worked hard to grow up chicken such as managing feeding, finding good market to sell even in countries adverse situation. Later on, we decided to cover more members and grant one more project which helps more women get involve in collective efforts in income generating. Furthermore, the women have never worked before for collective efforts. Now, they are more excited to work together.

The second project was granted with building a pig farm and handed them over with two piglets. The pig farm was officially inaugurated and handed over on last December, 2015. 
Now, we are getting update from our filed coordinators, the women group has earned Ruppees 45,000 gross profit by selling second lot chicken. The piglets are growing speedily.
