AYDA Senegal is in the process of establishing a new Henhouse Project which is aimed at generating funds to support its youth development work as well as to help enhance food security in the area.
The project aims to start this fall/summer and will be managed by the team at the AYDA Center in Senegal. The project aims to be an essential component of AYDA’s youth development activities as youth participants will be taught about the process (and ethics) of raising chickens as well as managing a poultry business. Hopefully this will also lead to the development of micro-enterprises by some students in future, after gaining the skills, knowledge and practical experience of raising and selling chickens.
This initial project will cost USD 1245, which includes raising 300 chickens and providing grain, vaccines and chicken houses. AYDA Senegal aims to use the proceeds from selling chickens through the Henhouse Project to buy an agricultural plot of land to expand the size of the project.
