FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does it work?
We partner NGOs, individuals in the community to distribute chickens, chicken coops and training for our low-cost feed formula. These chickens are bought from Chicken Hatcheries in the community. If there is no Chicken hatchery, we will explore building a chicken farm/hatchery with our partners.
How does the farm value-add to a community?
Many rural communities do not have sufficient affordable protein. Coupled with our duckweed technology, we are able to supply affordable protein to the families (Cost of feed reduced up to 90%). We work with community partners to distribute chickens to poor families.
Traditionally, fishmill and soy mill has been used as protein to feed chickens. We use duckweed as it has 35-45% protein and can be used to replace fishmeal and soymill. What more- it is certified safe to be used, reproduce quickly and is easily available.
