Brief Project Description:
The Centre de Formation et Développement Comunautaire (CEFODEC) needs to buy ration for its rabbits and chickens. The CEFODEC hosts 50 children victims of the traffic of child labor to Nigeria and also children from the communities of Agbangnizoun, Kleukanmé and Zogbodomé. Those kids are alphabetized in French (and prepared for the CEG exams) and also receive professional training in tailoring, weaving, carpentry and animal husbandry (goats, chickens and rabbits)
The animal husbandry is a very important activity for the CEFODEC because it ensures the quality of the meals consumed by the children of the center, brings revenues and also is an important professional tool for the community training provided by the center in 2010 and 2011 as well.
Rabbits and chickens need to consume an average of 5kg of provender per day, the provender is a mix of several kinds of food complements and vitamins that make up the food diet of rabbits and chickens. The amount provided by the found will feed 109 rabbits for 4 weeks and 100 chickens for 3 weeks.

From 2010 to the end of 2011, the CEFODEC is hosting the PED project (Protetion de l’enfant et Développement Humain Durable). The project is in partnership with L’Union Europeene, BCAT and le Ministere de la Famile) and its goal is to give technical support to the families to help them to develop their own sustainability to better support their children.

Dates of Project: July, 1st

Number of People Involved: This year the committees of 20 villages (10 villages from Agbangnizoun, 5 from Kleukanmé and 5 from Zogbodomé) came to the CEFODEC to receive a technical training (theoretical and practical classes). Each committee is made by 5 members of their communities (4 men and 1 woman – from the women’s group). There is also the Juvenal committee from each village that also will be visiting the center to receive training making a total of more than 100 people from several communities that will be receiving technical training at the CEFODEC.
The revenues from the chickens and rabbits will help to feed 50 children (27 boys 11-18 and 23 girls 11-17).

GAD Coordinator: Sounds like a good project but I would like more information. First, a gender breakdown of the assistant and supervisors, and to better understand the role of the volunteer and the assistants in the care of the chicken and rabbits. Also, what have they done in the past for food and what will they do in the future once these supplies are exhausted. Once questionsare answered, recommend funding.
