Help175 young women and girls who are the breadwinner of their household to transform their lives! With your donations they will build sustainable poultry farms that provide vital income and food security for their families, and develop life skills to overcome the fear, abuse and violence they face daily
Young women and girls who live in deep poverty often drop out of school to feed their family. They are lured into child marriages or sex work and crime to make ends meet. HIV and other infectious diseases, drugs, abuse and violence inevitably follow. CWE breaks this vicious cycle by helping them become successful in business as well as developing the life-skills and know-how to stop the violence and abuse.
CWE equips participants with the kit, knowhow, networks and market access they need to build a sustainable poultry business, creating income and food security. The technical package includes pullets and cocks, feed, vaccination, an egg incubator that hatches over 60 new chicks each month, and solar electricity and lighting for their household . The personal development element includes life-skills, mentoring, sign-posting and advocacy to end abuse. CWE graduate and go on to fund and mentor other women through the program.
