OPERATION TO PROMOTE RURAL EMPLOYMENT THROUGH POULTRY FARMING
This operation initiated by the ANPE for a number of years consists in designing and manufacturing large capacity incubators made in ANPE and testing them with the incubation of guinea fowl eggs or chicks, which after hatching will be made available to the actors of the poultry sector.
The operation had its first run in 2017 in Werebougou and Fombabougou, where poultry units were installed with more than 2,000 chicks and the creation of a dozen permanent jobs.
Based on this successful experience, the ANPE management undertook in September 2022 “the operation to provide electronic incubators and 1000 guinea fowl to poultry promoters registered at the ANPE. This was done during a grand ceremony at the CPR/ANPE in the presence of the Minister of National Entrepreneurship, Employment and Vocational Training, sponsor of the event, and the administrative and political authorities of the Bamako District. We also noted the presence of the beneficiaries of the said operation.
On behalf of the beneficiaries, their representative, Mr. Diaby Doucoure, promised to take good care of the guinea fowls and incubators made available and also promised to give satisfactory results within 6 months. All the interventions during this ceremony have magnified the event and show the importance of rural employment and especially the proximity employment through poultry farming.
The Director General, Ibrahim Ag NOCk, in his speech thanked all the personalities present before making history of the ANPE incubators and the first operations in Bamako, Koulikoro, Segou. He then outlined the expected results of this operation, among others:
-The beneficiaries are set up on their own account – The jobs (40) are created or consolidated – The public/private partnership is developed
The beneficiaries were called to make good use of the kits thus obtained. A monitoring and evaluation team from the ANPE will be in the field to do a close follow-up in order to minimize the risks.
Previously, the representative of the Mayor of the commune 3 of the District of Bamako, on behalf of the municipal council, welcomed the participants to the land of the commune 3 of Bamako. He also made a commitment to accompany the ANPE in this exciting activity.
The Minister DOUMBIA, sponsor of the event, said that rural employment can considerably reduce unemployment in young people and that his department will do everything possible to ensure that its technical structures work in synergy to make this job promotion activity a means of creating massive employment in rural areas. He also gave advice to the beneficiaries to take good care of the kits made available to them for a multiplier effect for the benefit of other project holders in the poultry field. The handing over of the kits by the DG /ANPE, the PCA /ANPE, and the Minister DOUMBIA ended this ceremony.
