Our Trip To Jugu, Dolakha: A 3-Day Poultry Farming Training

From January 22 to 26, we traveled to Jugu, Dolakha District, to conduct a 3-day poultry farming training for the 21 selected women of Chhaheshwori’s mothers’ group.

During those three days, the women gained an understanding and appreciation of poultry farming and why it’s an excellent source of livelihood. They learned from the basic aspects, such as different types and characteristics of chickens—to more practical and advanced knowledge, like area calculations for chicken nests, ventilation process, bulb processing, and setting up the adequate temperature for poultry farming. We also taught them about organization and quality control by bookkeeping and identifying healthy male and female chickens to keep a sustainable poultry farm.

The women who participated never had formal poultry training sessions like this before. That’s why they participated in every activity with dedication and enthusiasm. However, not all participants are completely new to this. A few have been involved in large-scale poultry farming in the past, but even they were unaware of different fowl diseases and medications. We tackled these gaps in knowledge by informing them of different types of chicken diseases, their symptoms, and prevention techniques.

With these newfound learnings in mind, these women now have more options to improve their and their family’s lives. We concluded the 3-day training with the distribution of certificates led by Jugu Ward 1 President, Mr. Prakash Bahadur Khadka. 

This productive trip truly helped our team return to Kathmandu in high spirits and positive vibrations for the year ahead!
