continues to benefit its rural stakeholders long after the
grant money is used up. The brooder units are to provide
ongoing training in poultry production management to the
farmers; and the chicken farmers are to provide a market
for the started chickens sold by the brooder units. The
foundation also has plans to connect farmers to local markets where they can sell surplus chicken and eggs.

Not a hand out, a sustainable hand up

these underdeveloped farming sectors is reflective of the
American experience of the 1930s to 1950s, when U.S.
poultry industry pioneers began integrating the coordination of the relationships between the different stages of
production. Like in the early U.S. poultry industry, the
foundation's approach in Africa is about creating mutually
sustainable business relationships.
The foundation's first step is helping establish over
1,500 "brooder units" that will acquire day-old chicks
from low-input, dual-purpose modern poultry lines, grow
the birds to four weeks of age, and sell the started chickens to smallholder farmers throughout rural Nigeria and
Tanzania.
The smallholder farmers - buying 10 to 30 chickens
at a time - will benefit by receiving more productive
dual-purpose chickens (growing to heavier weights more
quickly for meat production and laying more eggs) than
the indigenous chickens found locally throughout rural
Africa. The chickens, having been properly brooded, fed a
nutritionally complete diet and vaccinated by the brooder
units will be hardier, with less mortality.
The vision is for the brooder units and farm enterprises to be integral parts of a self-sustaining system that

During one of Ennis' early trips to Africa, a Tanzanian
expressed the need there as a plea: "We don't need another
group to come in and give us free chickens. We need jobs
and skills."
Ennis said, "Unlike past approaches of delivering free
chicks and feed to the rural farmers, this project will also
focus on training and extension support to build a sustainable value chain. Another key component of the project is
the establishment of over 1,500 entrepreneurial enterpris-
