Why the focus is on Nigeria and Tanzania
"The governments of Tanzania and Nigeria
have both recognized the key role of the rural
family poultry sector as a cornerstone for shared
economic growth, poverty reduction, and nutrition security," said World Poultry Foundation
CEO Randall Ennis.
"In Tanzania and Nigeria, smallholder
farmers rear poultry (80 percent of whom are
women), but they lack access to improved
genetics (versus the local indigenous breeds),
balanced feed, technical training, access to
financial services and efficient market linkages
to realize a profitable poultry operation.

es, primarily owned and managed
by women, who will supply healthy
brooded and vaccinated chicks to
the rural smallholder farmers."
By helping with the creation of the
brooder units and improvements in the
smallholder chicken and egg production farms, incomes are expected to
rise and people's nutrition improve.
While current farmer incomes vary,
Ennis provided an example. "Assume
a local farmer is making $100 a year
by selling some of her chickens and
eggs. We think that by having access
to these dual-purpose birds and a market, she could increase her income to
$700 a year."

Need in Africa has
a human face
The significance of the project
was very real to Ennis as he sat under
a tree in Tanzania talking to village
women about their chicken-growing

"It is recognized by both
the private and public sectors
that poultry constitutes an important
economic activity for the rural poor in
Tanzania, Nigeria and other African
countries. However, while most governments have initially focused on commercial
poultry systems, the rural poultry activities have
been largely ignored or sidelined. Of course, it
is these rural sidelined rural poultry operations
are the ones that have benefitted the disadvantaged and vulnerable, and have supplied most
of their basic nutritional needs."

"THIS IS A MODEL that
we think will work
in many countries
around the world."

Foundation president

enterprises. "One of the women on
the front row started tearing up. The
interpreter spoke with her and provided an explanation. She realized
that our plans could offer her the opportunity to pay the fees to send her
kids to school," he said.
In another village where the
World Poultry Foundation has already introduced some dual-purpose
breeds, a woman so prizes her
chickens that, at night, she keeps
them in a room in her house.
Ennis recounts, "When asked how
much money she was earning from

the sale of the eggs, she looked almost
embarrassed and said, 'I'm feeding
them all to my kids. In the morning I
fry these eggs up with some peppers
and spices, and that's what I feed them
before I send them off to school.'"
While most smallholder farmers
sell their eggs for income, he believes it
will become more common for them to
keep a portion of the surplus eggs for
consumption by their families.
The entrepreneurs operating the
brooder units should similarly realize
greater incomes. "These entrepreneurs could make between $6,000
