Women Building Chicken Coops (Senegal)


Titre : Women Building Chicken Coops (Senegal)

Pays : Senegal

Date : 2015

For many people in Ndiane, Senegal, animals and chickens are an important part of their daily lives, for health and nutrition and for economic reasons. However, without adequate protection, many women struggle if their animals get sick or eaten by local predators. This project will provide members of the Ndiane Women’s Group with money management workshops, as well as teach them how to construct durable chicken coops with local materials. Through this project, the women will learn important skills, enabling them to diversify their income sources, which will lead to more financial independence.

Project Update
Twelve women have been participating in the building workshops and have almost completed their chicken coops. The women are very dedicated and eager to complete this project, working on the coops from morning to sunset. Unexpectedly, some of their daughters have joined the workshops to gain the skills and experiences involved in the building process. Furthermore, community members continuously visit the workshops to encourage and support the women.

Budget : $463.73
