In early 2016, the couple sold 200 birds and earned Ksh 200 in total. 000 that the family used to renovate their home that was in poor condition. Ms. Osogo is proud of her home, they now have a decent home that makes her family live comfortably, thanks to their own efforts in their poultry project.

” Pamoja Child Foundation opened our eyes to the possibilities around us. We live in an area where the weather conditions are not very favorable for the production of crops, which is why poultry offers the best alternative to ensure a better income and food security for these community . ” Said Mr. Osogo.
