Jacky E.L. Foo is from Program Officer, Environment & Sustainable Development for Globetree (www.globetree.org)
during the last 12 months (since April 2008), I have been working in Kenya on a project about food self-reliance by vulnerable children. Seven rabbit houses were set up and the concept is to sell rabbit meat to the host organizations. Income
made is deposited into micro-loan funds and which children who manage the rabbit houses may benefit one day. Many of them may not go to secondary school and even fewer for higher education. Such rabbit houses provide the skills they may need to start their own rabbit farm when they leave school after Class 8 or Form 4.
Cameroon has caught up with the idea and will hopefully go the launch of “Rabbit Network Cameroon”
