Follow-up of the project

Date: 6/10/2016

General status:

  • To prevent the risks and the danger of the location of the land we have chosen another location on advice of the veterinarian
  • To prevent in-breeding we wanted males of Burundi, a better quality but more expensive. A dozen rabbits from the commune of Mabayi and Busasamana of the Republic of Burundi have arrived
  • Food for rabbits is very rare, in this case we could purchase a huge amount
  • The quantities of rabbits applied for were not available, we did a partial purchase in accordance with the opinion of the veterinarian

Progress since last status report:

The construction activities of phase I are for 80% realized, there remains the equipment of the cages, nest boxes, and the cage for the males. A temporary veterinarian meets twice a week. Each member of the Association receives two rabbits with which they can grow, once they have cages. The number of rabbits by 108 rabbits bred on the farm and 34 rabbits raised in households must increase, total 154. 142 female rabbits and 12 males rabbits.

Follow-up may 2017

Before visiting the rabbits we first took a look at the potato harvest (project 58) under guidance of Géneviève, the local responsible of the project and Thérèse, the chairwoman of the association Zamuka. The storage location for the plant potatoes was impressive: large racks on which the potatoes were nicely spread, all very decent and fresh. All members of the association receive plant potatoes so that each can plant potatoes in its own little garden. We also visited the potato fields on which two different kinds of potatoes are grown, on one of the fields peas are cultivated between the potatoes.

For the visit to the rabbits we were warmly welcomed with song and dance by the women of the Zamuka association. Here too, we were pleasantly surprised by the preparation of the rabbit hutches: a large number of lofts in two rows above each other, well separated, beautifully finished and very clean. By illness a lot of rabbits died but the necessary actions were taken. The outlook is consequently very well to go on growing with the remaining rabbits.
A very nice result through the efforts of all women of the association Zamuka!
