chicken and fish raising + mushroom spore training

chicken raising, clean latrine, fish farming, mushroom growth training, snack kiosk development, sustainable agriculture

In addition to CWS-led sustainable agriculture training, communities are learning alternative ways to produce food for their families. Chicken and fish raising initiatives along with mushroom spore training sessions are giving families new opportunities. They are now able to sell additional food and growth at the local markets as an income generating opportunity. The additional income is used by some families to start kiosks for snacks and petrol while others are able to send their children to school.

The Tep Kosal family participates in multiple CWS initiatives such as chicken raising, fish farming, and latrine building. They received initial chickens from CWS and those are used for eggs and additional chicken growth. It takes five months to raise the chickens. They are used for family consumption and to sell at the local market as an income-generating opportunity. They also started construction on a family latrine, but they are focused on chicken raising and fish farming and plan to complete the latrine in the coming months.
