Family Empowerment Program; A life line for families empowerment
Serve to empower Africa work with the families to identify simple home based economic activities which when implemented unlock almost every aspect of that family life; Health, Education, Food security, Spiritual and access to water. We quickly realized that Chicken farming is a simple single most important economic activity for majority of the families and one that even a day after implementing start to generate an income to the family. A chicken is cheap to get, easy to rear compared to other livestock and provides the most convenient way to generate an income. When a family have chicken, they can sell one or even eggs to meet simple and urgent family needs such as school based needs, Cooking based needs such as maize meal, cooking oil, sugar, salt, tea leaves and such. A family can sell eggs or even a chicken to raise funds for a monthly fee for health insurance fund or even selling an eggs for simple medication. When it comes to church based matters, chicken and eggs are taken to church as an offering, tithe including contributing them for auction to support church based activities. For families that have access to piped water lines, they are charged a fee that may require sale of a few eggs to manage that fee. Additionally chicken and eggs provides a family with a nutritional value required to remain healthy. Based on this, a combination of Chicken rearing, dairy farming and crop farming are the primary economic activities that Serve to Empower Africa have identified as simple means of family empowerment that starts off a family towards their empowerment journey that ultimately impacts every aspect of their lives. ]
