the poultry project


February 8th, 2010

Is the Poultry Project working?  Is it meeting its goal of improving the lives of children affected by HIV/AIDS and their caregivers?  How much money do they make from egg sales?  Is it enough money to make a significant difference in their lives?  Why are some families’ more successful at keeping chickens and growing their business?

We are hoping to get some answers to those questions in the coming months.  There are some George Washington University MPH students doing fellowships at TASO Mbale and they may help us conduct an evaluation!   An evaluation is long overdue and essential if we decide to scale-up and expand the project to TASO’s other 11 branches.

The evaluation will be qualitative and participatory.  We’re considering the Most Significant Change methodology (suggested by alanna from blood and milk – an intl dev blog I respect and admire).  Do you have any suggestions?  I ask that question and smile because I think I’m the only one reading this blog.  I’ll keep you posted on the evaluation.

The photo above has nothing to do with the post but I like to add an image and I don’t have any evaluation-related photos.  This photo was taken on E.105th street in the Glenville neighborhood of Cleveland.
