The House of Learning Organic Poultry Initiative

The House of Learning was founded in 2009 by Bunga and Marco Masala to provide free education to Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC). The House of Learning currently operates two schools, Valley View Secondary and the Quality Training Centre. Currently, the financial burden of running these much needed facilities is carried on the shoulders of Bunga and Marco.


The House of Learning Organic Poultry Project is a social enterprise that will provide a form of financial assistance by alleviating some of the operational costs of running the two facilities; it will also create employment opportunities for OVC in the area.  Profit generated through farming organic chicken will also be reinvested to grow the farm, and potentially to develop other social enterprises, such as a boarding school, to provide financial sustainability for the House of Learning.

The initial cost for the start-up is approximately 4975 CAD. In addition to recovering costs, the estimated profit after two months is 1450 CAD.

The Timberline and Carihi International Co-op class just returned back from their work placement trip to Nepal. A group of 23 students and chaperones spent their spring break experiencing the culture and adventures the small country had to offer. The class worked with Foundation on the Irrigation Initiative, and managed to raise enough money to fund 1.5 kilometers of the irrigation canal. This effort helped to aid thousands of farming families in the remote village of Lawachowk that could not have funded this project on their own.
