Poultry project comes to a standstill

17-05-2007 | | |

Due to a lack of financial assistance, a poultry-farming project, called ‘Handera Kasivi’, has reportedly come to a standstill.

The project is an initiative of the Kavango Region’s Kasivi community in the Kapako Constituency, Namibia. It is managed by unemployed youth with the aim of supporting orphans and vulnerable children.
The project is not progressing well and will come to a standstill due to a lack of electricity, water and an incubator, said the project’s Deputy Secretary, Muronga Patrick. She adds that they are appealing for help from the government and the private sector.
Kapako Constituency Councillor, Frieda Siwombe, has meanwhile requested financial assistance from Unicef to enable the project to continue. The project, the first of its kind in the Kapako Constituency, was launched in June 2006.
