What's happening...

Oh no! Not another Chickens-for-Africa photographic competition!


Chickens for Africa
Fundraising photography competition 2019

Yes! Together with our friends at Kyeema, we are launching the 2019 "Chickens for Africa" fundraising photography competition. We have had a tremendous response in previous years and we hope this continues.

Our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of village poultry for rural communities in Africa.

There will be two categories: professional and amateur. There will be nominal prizes for the top few entries. (Full terms and conditions here).


You're not much of a photographer? Then please consider donating a small amount towards our fundraising target of $10,000.


$10: Delivers training for a household in village chicken keeping practices including Newcastle disease control.

$30: Buys a household chicken starter kit: 1 rooster, 3 hens, 1 year's vaccination against Newcastle disease.

$100: Trains and equips a community vaccinator to vaccinate village chickens, a sustainable business that benefits the entire community.

And a pledge of up to a few hundred dollars over a couple of months would do absolutely wonderful things for our RPC Volunteers Program.
Or... you might be interested to support our Education and Training Program. (We have in our sights a bright young Malawian candidate for whom we hope to obtain pledges of support of about $600 twice each year for tuition fees for a Diploma in Animal Health and Production at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources).


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

And finally, please bear with us if you have already learned of this campaign from our friends at KYEEMA.
