Three hundred and sixty chickens have recently found new homes at Kachiuru with eighty families who have children in the school.
Collaborating and Skill Building
The goal of the distribution is to provide nutritious food to the households so that children will be healthier and more actively engaged in activities at school and during their free time. The Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries facilitated a training seminar for the parents who learned first how to make chicken houses and to keep the birds safe from predators. Then they were taught about general management, feeding, breeding, selecting eggs for setting, disease control, external parasites and record keeping. The teachers and school management committee coordinated and supervised all of the activities and supported the parents throughout the training. Before delivery, both the incoming chickens and chickens already in the village were vaccinated against Newcastle disease and fowl pox in July and again in September.
