Our Partners and Sponsors
We have been working with a range of donors and implementing partners since our inception.
We are particularly grateful for the long-standing funding support of DFAT, Palladium and FAO.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has been supporting KYEEMA since 2005 through a range of grants in Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania to assist these countries to produce the I-2 vaccine, establish distribution systems and train community vaccinators. Most recently they have supported our work with the African Union Pan African Veterinary Vaccination Centre in Ethiopia to support expansion of these activities regionally.
Palladium (previously GRM International) has been supporting KYEEMA since its inception through the provision of office space, and administrative and financial support for activities in Tanzania, Mozambique, Solomon Islands and Malawi. This valuable support has allowed KYEEMA to establish and expand its work around the world.
Achieving food security for all is at the heart of Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations’ efforts – to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. FAO continues to support KYEEMA to achieve this goal through village chicken vaccinations programs in Mozambique and through production of guidelines for Decision Tools for Family Poultry Development.
In 2012 we commenced work with the AFRICAN UNION Pan African Veterinary Vaccination Centre (AU PANVAC) so that the poultry ND vaccination work could be expanded across AU countries. Initial focus is developing a curriculum for training Master Trainers covering vaccine production, quality assurance, use of vaccine in the field and poultry husbandry practices.
We are supported by the Australian Centre For International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) through the provision of ND publications for Laboratory and Field activities, and through provision of funds to update and translate these publications into different languages.
The National Rural Poultry Centre exists to promote the needs of smallholder poultry farmers in Malawi and to raise livelihoods and contribute to improved nutrition in rural areas of Malawi. Presently, there is no other local organisation dedicated to village poultry.

The University of Sydney teamed with KYEEMA to design and implement a research program, funded by ACIAR that is working in Tanzania and Zambia to provide data on the benefits of integrated crop and poultry management systems in villages to improve food security.
In 2012 KYEEMA Foundation became a full member of the Australian Council For International Development (ACFID).
ACFID is the peak Council for Australian not-for-profit aid and development organisations working to attain a world where gross inequality and extreme poverty are eradicated.
KYEEMA has been working with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) since 2009 as the Australian Partner Organisation for volunteers under the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD), now the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program.
The Centre for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA) was established by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Member States to improve agricultural technology generation, dissemination and adoption in the region through collective efforts, training and capacity building. The focus of CCARDESA is on smallholder farmers who are not only in the majority in the SADC region but also hold vast potential for kindling agricultural-based economic growth and reducing hunger, poverty and under nutrition. KYEEMA is working with the Tanzanian Livestock Research Institute (TALIRI) to implement a project in Mozambique and Tanzania through support from the European Union-funded First CCARDESA grants program.
