Some of the youths of Wakitaka also want to start vegetable growing. They are planning to rent a 1/2 acre land to do it. They are also planning to use the bucket drip system for water. Help them to find out which vegetables to grow, how to achieve the best results, how and when to sell them.
Update: This task has been accomplished. But further updates and advice are welcome.
The goat project commenced in April, 2009 with 6 goats, and shortly after a few months, the goats began giving birth at intervals with some giving birth to twins. This brought the total number to 11 goats within a period of six months. However, one kid was knocked down by an over speeding cyclist reducing the number to 10. In January 2010, the youth bought more three adult goats with funds resulting from the youth’s crafts sold by Esther and Maria in Europe between October to December, 2009. This has increased the number from 10 to 13 goats.
The youths in the village started to do poultry farming two months ago. They have a house where to keep them - one of the villagers provided it to them. The first broilers are now ready to sell and most of them have already been sold.
Please post your ideas/advice here that you have for the project, if there is not a task for it already. The project has started very recently and is looking for further ideas of income generation and training.
