CHICKEN FOR PROSPERITY was started in early March 2019 during our village to the Rotary Village.  Last week our volunteer Rotaract students from Babarmahal, Rudramati and Monohara visited the village and conducted survey about this chiken project. 
 
Due to financial hardship school dropout rates continued to increase in Nepal.
 
To address this problem The Rotary club of Branchburg and the ASHA PROJECT created this special project to help villagers with sustainable and beneficial program for the children and their families.  “CHICKEN FOR PROSPERITY”  was created during their 2019 Humanitarian mission  to Nepal and distributed 2 chickens each to 100 families in this village to do a chicken farming. Chicken farming is known to be a very successful and profitable project in Nepal due to high demand for organic eggs and meat.
 
 
The overall goal for this project is to assist indigenous families in Barumchuli Rotary Village in Nepal to help overcome economic hardship by providing two chickens each to student’s families. By improving the family’s financial needs, families will be able to invest more money into feeding their families and children will not be required to work and therefore attend school.
  
 
 
 
We are happy to report that these chikens are doing well and started laying eggs. Villages found it difficult to raise only 2 chicken each.  We are considering a new model where they can create a cooperative and raise large number of chikens at this village.
 
This Rotary Village was built after 2015 Nepal earthquake with the help of Rotarians around the world.
 
 
Our club has adopted their public school and has been distributing school supplies and other resources for the school. We will be also conducting an essay contest called “What I want to be when I grow up” later this year.
We hope that with this Chicken project school dropout will be reduced substantially and increase school participation.
