BOROKWONY WOMEN’S GROUP CHICKEN PROJECT
The Borokwony Women’s Group is located in the Lemolo IDP Camp, and is KIDS Initiative's current project, aiming to create a sustainable income generating program. Beginning in 2022, KIDS provided the women with funds to purchase an incubator for chickens, and the supplies to build the facilities to house them. By hatching over 1,000 chicks every 21 days, the Borokwony Women’s Group will be able to generate income for themselves in several ways - chicks are used for egg production or sold once mature, and others are sold to community members who want to start their own chicken project, all creating funds to purchase more supplies and rending the project self-sustaining.
Through this sustainable project, the women are able to become more independent while providing food and income for their community. The Borokwony Women’s Group Chicken Project works towards directly achieving 2 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: #1 No Poverty and #2 Zero Hunger.
