Current Project Profile

Project Title: Livestock Project for 200 Poor Households in South-west Burkina Faso
Location: Koper and Diebougou/Tiankoura areas
Number of families: 200
Animals: Poultry
Other inputs: One pick up truck, 2 motorbikes, chicken shelter construction materials, chicken feed, veterinary products and tree plants
Training: Training of families will be carried out by Extension trainers hired by ASUDEC. Families will be instructed in chicken shelter contruction, poultry management, sustainable agriculture and tree planting. 
Brief synopsis: This project is an extension of previous projects supported by Bóthar in Koper and the Diebougou/Tiankoura areas. This project aims to support 200 new beneficiary families in South-west Burkina Faso with chicken projects for two years in two locations.  These families will receive their chickens from previous Bóthar project beneficiaries. A special emphasis will be put on assisting farmers in defining clearer objectives for their projects. 
Pass-on obligations: At the end of the first year, each family will be expected to pass-on at least 10 + x chickens which will be shared as follows:  10 chickens to support a new needy family and x chickens (depending on the community) to contribute to community expenditures such as the construction or repair of infrastructures (schools, dispensary, water pumps, digging of wells, etc). 
Expected benefits: It is expected that farmers’ technical and financial management skills will improve significantly, resulting in improved productivity and income, and the production of more plausible impacts by the end of the project.
