Poultry farm rebuiling CRVO Kabale Uganda 2015

Name project: Poultry farm rebuilding and restocking

Location: Kabale, Uganda

Project leadtime: 3 months

Requestor:  Leonard Tumwesigye for CRVO (Children Rescue Voluntary Organisation)

Description of the project:

In 2010 we came up with the poultry project as an income generating project as supplementary sources of income to CRVO as well as for households from where we have children in the project. The organization has been running this poultry since 2010 with full support from Vleugels van Hoop association till early June 2015 when we lost all the birds due to the disease outbreak that left all the chicken 800 in number dead despite the intervention of the veterinary doctor. This project has been the major source of income to cater for children’s education.

Objectives:

Improve/rebuild the existing poultry farm and restock

  • To increase the sustainability of CRVO for it to be able to continuously support its Vision and mission for the orphans and vulnerable children.
  • To promote socio-economic transformation of Children and their community through income generating projects at the household level, which will help them in meeting their own basic needs.
  • To establish an income generating project for CRVO to help support the operations and interventions of the CRVO as well as ensuring sustainability of the children’s support
  • To improve the nutrition at the house hold level.

Beneficiaries:

  • Individual households having income generating projects and improved nutrition
  • Having a source of income for the children’s school fees necessities to support its operations and interventions in the community more especially for the orphans and vulnerable children.
  • Both children, caregivers and community will acquire improved skills and knowledge for productive poultry keeping.
  • Creation of employment for some community members.
  • Through this project the orphans and vulnerable children, their caregivers/parents and community members will be equipped with business/entrepreneurial skills.

Risks:

Kroiler breed is an Indian breed that has been recommended as resistant to diseases. It has also been recommended to construct new structures which are improved and are made up of only iron sheets to avoid some eventualities including fire outbreak. Most of the materials that were being used should not be used in new restock to avoid transfer of diseases from the previous chickens.
