Poultry Training in KZN

Poultry Training in KZN

Zimele UK have sent through more photographs of how funding from GAGA UK was spent in 2015. 

For the past two years, GAGA UK have provided funding for an agricultural project in Mtubatuba, KZN, South Africa). This funding went towards training and infrastructure, to help small scale farmers produce for themselves and families, and create small businesses. The entrepreneurial spirit of the people there is fantastic! 

Some of the money went towards a week long training course for a group of women to attend the KZN Poultry Institute, and learn more about chickens!

As you can see from the photo to the left, the women learnt about the importance of infra-red lamps, clean water and an adequate food supply for healthy chicks. 

Some of the women in Mtubatuba now have 20 layer chickens and 200 broiler chicks. They collect 16-18 eggs everyday, which can be sold at R2 each, and the broiler chicks at R80 each. 

Trainees learnt about the importance of space for growth, as well as protection of chickens and eggs in secure huts. Much more was learnt throughout the week, both in a practical and theorectical sense.

Thanks to both Zimele and KZNPI for giving these women this opportunity, and good luck to all who attended the training!
