Chicken Project

Chicken Project

To embrace Rousseau and the surrounding communities’ problems, OSAPO has introduced a poultry project to facilitate the process of sustainability. We believe that through this project we will be able to create jobs, increase the productivity of farmers, reduce women’s dependency on men, and create an income to further invest in sustainable projects for the community. Ideally, in the next five years we will produce 25,000 eggs per day. (In Haiti, 63 million eggs are consumed each year; only 10% of these are produced in country; most are from the Dominican Republic.)

Local farmers receive seeds (such as corn and beans) to produce for OSAPO, and OSAPO buys the harvest from them to produce its own food for the chickens. 60% of the cost of an egg goes to chicken feed, so this greatly reduce the feeding costs to maximize profitability. If we are able to produce 25,000 eggs per day, OSAPO can create more than 150 full time jobs in the community. Additionally, more than 25 women will be able to benefit by selling the eggs on the market and making a daily profit, then they can use that money to purchase nutritious food for their families.
