Nô Fia Na Crias, COAJOQ

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The animal and livestock Cooperative of young professionals in Can-chungo - COAJOQ was founded with the objective of achieving sustai-nable community development by promoting entrepreneurship among young unemployed people, along with ensuring the sustainabi-lity of grassroots associations. Our method is based on small-scale mechanisation (we use tractors, rice peelers, palm oil presses, drop to drop irrigation systems, etc.), along with information and raising far-mers’ awareness (community radio programmes, permanent technical assistance, support for collective management and pest control). We also invest in the production of short cycle animals. In everything COA-JOQ does, it tries not to unbalance the cultural and social life of the surrounding community and not to harm the soils. This project aims at developing a cooperative and community integrated system of poultry production, goat and its derivatives to increase the availability and access to protein sources and contribute to improve farmers’ liveli-hoods.

ACTIVITIES

This is an estimated fifteen-day training experience.  Activities include:

  • Briefing on both local context and project background;
  • Support for the production of awareness-raising tools for breeders and the community;
  • Support for services provided by the cooperative, such as training and technical assistance and  marketing.
  • Concrete proposals made by the group of participants (negotiated between both parties)..
