IMPROVING LIVES CAN TAKE ON MANY FORMS.

This could be through increase in income, improved nutrition through diverse diets, training and education, improvements in health and improvements in hygiene (water, sanitation.) Through the implementation of the African Poultry Multiplication Initiative, as well as other WPF sponsored programs, we can accurately measure progress and impact in many of these attributes through real time data collection.

IMPROVING LIVES GLOBALLY

 

Improving lives can take on many forms. This could be through increases in income, improved nutrition through diverse diets, training and education, improvements in health, and improvements in hygiene (water, sanitization). Through the implementation of the African Poultry Multiplication Initiative, as well as other WPF sponsored programs, we can accurately measure progress and impact in many of these attributes where we have access to the data (we do not have access to data such as health and hygiene for example).

 
INCOME
 

Primary Goal:

Double the income for 15 million APMI families by the end of 2025 (using a baseline average of 6.6 people in a household.)

  • Target 15 million
  • Actual through 2019 – 6.67 million households

  • Target
  • Actual

Secondary Goal:

Increase the household income for rural small scale producers who receive dual purpose breeds from a baseline of USD $81 per annum to USD $165 per annum by the end of 2025 (based on 30 birds.)

  • Baseline – $81
  • Target – $162
  • Actual – $188

EDUCATION & TRAINING
 

Demonstrating Real Change

The transference of knowledge and technical skills can change behaviors and practices in production to attain higher productivity and efficiency. See below the number of participants in WPF sponsored education and training programs. Through third party follow-up surveys, we know that a high percentage reported increases in production, finance, or quality of life due to the training.

 
  • Technical
  • Financial
  • Production
  • Veterinary

Total Trainees: 1,722

  • Technical – 582
  • Financial – 243
  • Production – 822
  • Veterinary – 75

Retention and Impact

As part of their mission to empower farmers globally, the World Poultry Foundation has undertaken poultry production training for small and disadvantaged growers. In 2019, WPF contracted with the Kwazulu Natal Poultry Institute (KZNPI) to undertake training for 300 farmers and extension agents (train-the-trainer program). We’ve created this report to showcase the impact on those training efforts.

NUTRITION
 

In Progress

Baseline surveys on nutritional impacts have been completed and mid-line surveys are currently underway. This section will be updated with results soon.

 
STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
 

“I’m very, very lucky,” Sicelo Gamede exclaims.  “The managers move us around the operation and allow us to shadow them. We are learning how to run the farm.”  “Sometimes I have responsibility for close to a million chickens,” he beams. 

——

Nothando “Thando” Sibiya, one of the first WPF-funded South Africans to return from a year-long poultry internship in the US, recently took on a new management position in South Africa.  She now oversees a dozen staff at a larger layer operation.  The new farm’s 13 houses hold 50,000 birds, still “way fewer than at Iowa Cage Free,” where she interned.  In fact, she says with a smile, “that’s like one house in Iowa.” 

——

Nkosinathi Zuzumuzi Buthelezi has big plans for a farming career in South Africa when he completes his World Poultry Foundation-funded farm internship at Rose Acre Farms in Indiana at the end of the year.  He has his sights set on setting up a broiler operation in his home town of Nongoma in the heart of Zululand.  “There aren’t any commercial poultry farms in Nongoma.  It’s a good opportunity,” to utilize what I have learned he says.

WHILE EMPOWERING FARMERS

 

Empowerment can be difficult to measure but for the African Poultry Multiplication Initiative it is a function of the percent of women who are participating in the value chain. Our emphasis for empowerment is focused on creating access to quality poultry inputs for women.

 
BROODER UNITS
 

Primary Goal:

Increase the number of women managed and controlled brooder units. Our target is to engage 70% of women in brooder management

  • Current Actual (through 2019) – 68%

MANAGING SMALL FLOCKS
 

Primary Goal:

Increase the number women purchasing and managing small flocks of dual purpose breeds. Our target is to include 85% of women in small flock management.

  • Current actual through 2019 – 75.6%

  • Through 2019
  • Remaining
INCREASE FLOCK SIZES
