The smallholder poultry project is funded by the Embassy of the United States of America through PEPFAR. The project aims to build economic resilience for 70 youth (70% females and 30% males) aged 15-30 years through small-value chain chicken production integrated with Internal Savings and Lending (ISALs). The long term goal is to reduce HIV incidence in Zaka district through economic resilience building. When youth particularly Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) have their own income, they will have agency to negotiate for safer sex, escape child marriages and avoid sex work, decreasing the spread of HIV/AIDS.
“Power to her” is a self-funded project being implemented in Zaka district to support the girl child to have equitable access to education through provision of school stationery, tuition and examination fees. It also supports girls with access to sanitary products, fighting against period poverty to ensure that girls are not excluded from classes during their menstruation. This is an ongoing initiative, and we aim to build a just and equitable society where the right to education for the girl child is fulfilled. If her right to education is fulfilled, she will have power and skills to participate equally in all life opportunities – promoting gender equality.
