Rotary Club of Blythe Bridge & District funded a poultry project.
The Makanda Womens Group live in the Manungu district south of Monze. They are a women's support group including widows, the elderly and disabled.
The group asked Deana for help to generate income to enable them to run a school for 3 to 7 year olds and support the 9 children with disabilities in the group. The Blythe Bridge Rotary Club heard about this group and kindly offered to fund an egg laying project to enable the group to generate income. We provided capacity building for the group to learn poultry management and book keeping.
We are pleased to report the project is continuing to be self sustaining. In 2018 the group are now rearing chickens which they sell to generate income to support their early years school and members of the group.
The Makanda Womens Group are happy to have this project and would like to thank Blythe Bridge Rotary Club for their help.
