Alternative Chicken Feed Project
What are we doing?
We've partnered with a local Haitian Non-Profit, Agrinotech, to deduce a cheaper way to feed chickens.
For years, our chicken projects have been hindered by overpriced chicken feed. In order to maximize profits for local chicken farmers, we have begun a chicken project with more than 3,000 broilers to help solve this issue.
With the help of Agrinotech, we are assessing the development of these birds while they are being administered a new chicken feed formula that comes from local crops. This forumula is way cheaper than the commercial feed, just as nutritious and even more sustainably sourced.
Our hope is to relay this information to local farmers and entrepreneurs in the feed production, processing, and poultry production industries.
What is the impact?
The project employs a half dozen of local Haitian community members, and at-risk youth.
Additionally, the broilers will be sold locally to a restaurant and will generate healthy food for the community, as well as sustainable funding to continue the research and program, while netting a profit that can be re-invested into further expanding the project and impact.
