KYEEMA team running to #getkuku4thegirls

Small-scale poultry systems are important in food-insecure, resource-poor regions. Improving the health of chickens, or ‘kuku’ as they are known as in many parts of Sub Saharan Africa, contributes to each dimension of food security and empowers women. It is a key local solution for addressing several of the global sustainable development goals, mainly zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education and gender equality.

That is why this Sunday 27 August, a group of KYEEMA supporters will be running to #getkuku4thegirls in the Bridge to Brisbane fun run event. Please consider supporting us with a donation.


Is the average one-off cost per household to deliver our programs on the benefits of Newcastle disease vaccination and chicken keeping practices for better health, nutrition and livelihoods.  


Is the cost of a chicken starter package which includes a rooster, 3 hens and 1 years’ free vaccination against Newcastle disease. 


Trains and equips a community vaccinator to administer the Newcastle disease vaccine and train households in improved chicken keeping practices. This small business model is the missing link between small holder farmers and government health workers, as typically chickens are not a high priority livestock.

Meet the KYEEMA running team – all women who are Mums or working for community development!
