We are an Australian not-for-profit organisation primarily focused on supporting improved health and production of village chickens as they are often the only animals owned by vulnerable households, especially women-headed households. We also support local innovation for solutions to local problems, because communities know what they need. We believe in demand-driven development and the localisation of aid.

CHICKENS FOR CHANGE

By putting financial resources in the hands of mothers, the versatile village chicken empowers women as decision-makers within the household, which can lead to improved outcomes in child education and nutrition.

HEAR FROM THE PEOPLE WE WORK WITH

Our Kyeema Champions

“For me personally, the thought of food security being an issue in PNG was eye-opening. I grew up in PNG with an abundance of fresh produce being sold at the markets and it never crossed my mind that we were having an ongoing issue with food security.”

– Melissa, Papua New Guinea

“I enjoy working with the farmers, particularly in helping them to digitize the marketing process and overcome some of the challenges of the middlemen.”

– Tracy, Kenya

We want to thank Amedio for the hard work and immense input into the development of the village chicken farm hub at Vanapa in Central Province.
