Our Chicken Coop Initiative
As of 2019, ISCA-AIDC has helped build 27 chicken coops in rural communities in developing countries, producing 3,600 dozen eggs per year and 7,270 chickens for meat per year.
What does ISCA do?
ISCA creates opportunities for communities in need by helping them build sustainable agriculture systems.
You Can Make a Difference
Make an impact for smallholder farmers by helping to rebuild and strengthen agricultural systems.
International Sustainable Community Assistance – Appui International Durable aux Communautés (ISCA-AIDC) creates opportunities for communities in need by helping them build sustainable agriculture systems.
To achieve our mission, we are guided by our values and work with communities to:
- Improve livestock health
- Increase livestock production
- Enhance farmers’ skills
- Develop market access
To work towards improving livestock health, we assist communities with veterinary health clinics. These serve to strengthen our relationship with communities and conduct animal health and agriculture production assessments as a starting point to further engagement with communities.
To increase livestock production, we have developed a successful and sustainable chicken production system in several communities (see past projects), allowing youth and women to derive an additional income from poultry sales. Ongoing community knowledge exchange and farmer training contributes to the long-term goal of increasing livestock production.
To enhance farmers’ skills, we provide training in livestock health, value-chain development, and marketing. Where established, we also work with local veterinary agents.
To develop market access, we conduct assessments of the local market situation and provide community assistance to maximize profitability of agricultural products.
