The setting up of an egg laying farm
In co-operation with Dan Church Aid, LACTOSAN-SANOVO Ingredients Group and SANOVO Technology Group support the setting up of an egg laying farm.
The main objective of the farm is to produce and sell eggs to local institutions or on the local market in Malawi. The project includes a proper supply of feed, education of local staff and vaccines for the chickens. Everything is handled by a group of selected local women who are trained during the project process. Sanovo Technology Group and Dan Church Aid initiated the chicken project in December 2007.

In a country where agriculture is mainly dominated by women, the burden of fending for the family is largely borne by this group. And in these hard times, chickens have become Malawi’s women’s best friends.
Dan Church Aid (DCA) with financial support from Lactosan-Sanovo Ingredients Group and Sanovo Technology Group is helping women groups in Lilongwe to rear chickens as one way of protecting them from the perennial shocks that come with changing climatic conditions.
