Chicken farms in Oviri


Whether it’s selling trees to buy food at the local market or clearing forest to grow more crops, hunger puts serious pressure on communities and their surrounding rainforest.

That’s why Cool Earth is working closely with local technicians to end malnutrition in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. As part of the development of an impressive nutrition programme, two families in Oviri have received funding to tackle just that.

This spring, the Oviri association awarded community funding to start chicken farming. Funding provided a coop, maize to grow for chicken feed, chickens to populate the farm, and training to look after them.

If the project goes well, the plan is to invest in more chickens so more families can benefit from the protein and nutrition chicken and eggs provide.
