Project to fight poverty will increase egg production in Eastern Samar town
To conduct livelihood projects in two underprivileged areas, two non-governmental organizations have created partnerships with the local government of Arteche, Eastern Samar.
The towns of Carapdapan and Beri will be included in the initiative being carried out by the local administration, Zero Extreme Poverty 2030, and Filipino Business for Social Progress (PBSP).
The two associations will get 40 egg-laying devices and 4,000 chicks from the La Salle Foundation through PBSP. As of 2022, we will only be 20% self-sufficient in terms of egg production, so this is a huge help, according to Roland Boie Evardone, the mayor, in an interview on Friday.
According to the mayor of Arteche Town, the scheme will double the town’s current egg production.
“The project we wish to implement is something that is within the value chain. the one that will assure that the association’s project will be sustained with or without help from the government. The local market has a significant need,” remarked Evardone.
The project, which is in accordance with the local government’s commitment to food security, will directly assist 20 households, totaling around 60 people.
Its program partner, PBSP, is the largest business-led non-governmental organization working to improve nutrition, achieve universal health coverage among low-income families, and decrease morbidity and mortality in the nation. It also supports the basic education of underprivileged children and youth.
In 2018, Arteche Town and ZEP 2030 began working together.
By 2030, ZEP 2030 aims to eradicate extreme poverty among millions of Filipinos with the support of 17 civil society organizations.
Their operations are centered on housing, shelter, social justice, peace, and human security, agriculture and fisheries, livelihood and employment, health, education, and the environment.
Prior to this poultry project, the villagers were developing a program that encouraged backyard gardening, with each town cultivating a certain vegetable to fulfill local needs.
A third-class municipality, Arteche has a 58.66 percent poverty rate. As of 2020, there were 16,320 residents in the town.
