Goodtripper: The Poultry Project

Mbale, Uganda
04.04.2011 | by: Kelly

On Wednesday, I’m headed to Brooklyn for a party at the Woods in Williamsburg to help raise money for the Poultry Project-a nonprofit I started six years ago when I spent a summer in Uganda.  The Poultry Project helps HIV/AIDS-affected families (there are approximately one million AIDS orphans in Uganda) earn income through smallholder poultry farming. Through a partnership with an indigenous Ugandan nonprofit, The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), the Project has helped 27 families in the Mbale area and plans to expand to TASO’s other Uganda locations. Next month, six of us (lawyer, nutritionist, architect, photographer, businesswoman and social worker) will travel to Uganda to help 30 new families start their own chicken businesses (selling eggs) and host a design/build chicken coop workshop. DesignCorps fellow Emily Axtman submitted a winning coop design to the Poultry Project’s first annual Chicken Coop Design Competition last fall, and she’s traveling with us this spring to work with some of the farmers to design and build chicken coops out of local materials. After a coop is designed, all farmers will receive the materials and assistance to construct the coops.

The Details:
If you’re in the NYC area, stop by the Woods on Wednesday, April 6 for drinks, food, music and a raffle with items from: Cafe Habana, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Diner, NY Yankees, Yoga Sutra, Whittmore House Salon, Blue Ribbon General. And if you’re interested in learning more about the project, you can follow our journey and progress at the Poultry Project blog.
