Aina and her husband Blossom work in the community of Zargun in their native Nigeria.
To restore an abandoned poultry farm in the Zargun community to provide nutrition, employment and manure for the crop farmers.
This project to restore an abandoned poultry farm in Zargun Kamang, Nigeria, was undertaken to address major starvation, economic plight, and despair after this community was attacked by herdsmen burning their crops and killing many in the community. These attacks were politically motivated by those in power in Nigeria.
When the poultry farm was functioning in the past, it provided nutrition, employment and manure for the crop farmers. The farm closed as a result of poor productivity caused by an E.coli epidemic. With the successful implementation of Project 17-1 (a water well providing clean, safe water), diseases were eliminated. Reinstating the poultry farm was a viable option made possible by SIFAT’s support of the prior water project.
