Our mission is to be a catalyst for improving lives globally through the sustainable production of poultry by empowering farmers in developing regions.

Global Reach

Improving lives through increases in income, improved nutrition through diverse diets, training and education, health and hygiene. 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.
