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 in Boma (a small village 30 minutes outside of Moshi) 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.
