Create local income to support orphans

Orphans and vulnerable children poultry project

Moyamunye community, a group of local people plans a broiler project to support orphans and to create employment. The original project had to be re-dimensioned to be more in line with local demand and marketing possibilities. The project initiators select World Vision as the local NGO to assist them in implementing the project.

sahee initiates and finances a one-week seminar for this and another group to improve the understanding of group dynamics, to make clear all rights and duties coming with each function of a group member. The seminal also addresses the issue of respect towards competing producers and mentions possibilities for synergies. It further improves the cooperation among all development agencies in the Mambane region.

Sahee continues to support this group through a local development expert. He facilitates the phase of becoming self-dependent and ensures that the income supports orphan's homesteads. In the last phase of support, sahee grants a loan to the group to purchase broiler chicken. The local development facilitator makes sure the beneficiaries become truly independent and being able to support local orphans.
