Our Work in Kenya
The Kenyan population is growing, and more people want to improve their diets by adding animal protein such as poultry.
The government’s agricultural development strategy also aims to improve food security. A new National Poultry Policy will set the stage for programs that increase and sustain poultry production through improved practices and marketing.
Heifer International has worked in Kenya for over 35 years, supporting poultry and other kinds of farming.
Hatching Hope in Kenya will build on existing relationships in the financial sector and in farmer cooperatives, improving productivity, incomes and market connections for poultry farmers. It will also introduce poultry to other farming cooperatives as a way to diversify their incomes.
Hatching Hope projects in Kenya are planned for the second half of 2019.
