Poverty Alleviation: Chief Promises Each Family In His Town 5 Chickens

The Paramount chief of Owirenchiman Traditional Area in Assin Kushea, Ghana has promised to help each family in the town with five poultry birds as a measure of reducing poverty in his community.

Speaking with Adom News, the chief said 25 families will be selected and given five chicks for the pilot programme and
would cover the entire town if successful.

In his words:

“Gaining employment here is quite difficult especially with women. I am taking 25 families. I will give each of them five chickens. Rearing them well can help the town. If you have five chickens and each of them lays 8 eggs at least that is even 40 eggs. The profit can help the family in a way…”

“We have two factories producing quail eggs. We deal with poultry and eggs. We pray the government helps us in any way he can we don’t need huge factories but any small scale factory isn’t bad…” he added.
