Geographical and economical location of the country
Overlooked by Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria’s population is estimated at 167 million people where more than 250 ethnic groups live together.
Former cereal granary of all Western Africa, cassava and cocoa beans are nowadays still cultivated in mass and constitute a real strength for the country in the international trades’ stage.
Policies want to favour the development of the energy sector within the country because they are aware of the economic dynamism regarding the agricultural sector. This growth enables the country to be one of the future emerging countries (Next eleven).
The Nigerian growth plan leads to the liberalisation of the economy, with a strong desire to trade with other countries.
The possibility of new economic priorities for the country put aside public health problems, and instead of being resolved they seem to get worst. Malnutrition and under nutrition are in the centre of all issues.
For our project, we invite you to join us in a small town located next to Port Harcourt, main town of the Rivers’ state in South Nigeria, at the heart of a chicken farming.
We are helping deprived and marginalised people of the society because our ‘brothers’ need us.
Our Community of the provincial House is divided into three parts:
- The Provincialate helps Sisters and poor people for administration. It is the headquarters of the Charity Sisters located in Nigeria, Ghana and Burkina-Faso.
- The local community is welcoming sisters and poor people in the surrounding area.
- The seminar, also called novitiate is where young girls are trained to become Charity Sisters, because it is their vocation. Since the start of their training, they experience helping poor people via home visit in order to know more about them and their environment. The sisters are trying to find a way to meet their needs.
We also helped deprived people of the surroundings in different fields -social, pastoral, health and education.
Our buildings welcome organisms of the Diocese and lay people where they can plan meetings or spiritual retreats.
Chicken farming project
In many African countries, malnutrition is a scourge and Nigeria is reached as well.
We want to contribute to this project and help families and poor children by bringing them the essential proteins and fight malnutrition, via the development of the chicken farming.
This farming will allow to set up a small company where two sisters and two deaf young adults could work. The surrounding farmers will provide food to chicken, then the merchant women will sell it, thereby creating a real commercial chain at the local scale.
We also want to fund a space to welcome the day-old chicks and the food, to purchase equipment for the chicken farming and its food, to purchase laying hens, sawdust for the floor maintenance and an incubator to raise chicks, all of this thanks to your generosity.
We require €5000 to carry on this project.
This chicken farming will have a positive, important and varied impact for many people.
The sisters built this project. Two young and deaf people will get a work adapted to their disabilities, thus they could be proud to contribute to the local economy. The saleswoman will work and try to make the local economy sustainable, farmers who sell animal feed will be proud to participate to such a project which will help the local inhabitants. Thus, the children will benefit from a richer diet which will contribute to their growth and development.
This breeding appears to be a real solution to tackle malnutrition but also a way to work for the development of the country.
Thank you for your generosity which will help us to create a barrier against hunger in the world. In fact, we will bring to Nigerian families and children the necessary foodstuff
