World billionaire and the biggest philanthropy is trying seriously to end poverty in Africa, and guess what how he plans to do it? Through chicken, yes, you read me correctly. I hope if this his idea is successful, he should be able to end the remaining poverty in the developed countries with cows. aha?
According to Bill Gates in his own words ”
“I’ve met many people in poor countries who raise chickens, and I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of owning these birds. It’s pretty clear to me that just about anyone who’s living in extreme poverty is better off if they have chickens,” the philanthropist wrote in a blog post.
He also provided a real-life example of a woman who starts with five hens
One of her neighbors owns a rooster to fertilize the hens’ eggs. After three months, she can have a flock of 40 chicks. Eventually, with a sale price of $5 per chicken—which is typical in West Africa—she can earn more than $1,000 a year, versus the extreme-poverty line of about $700 a year.”
With these ideas, Bill Gates will be able to provide vaccinated chickens to African families who are interested in this ideas of his, breed the chicken for resale according to how chickens are being sold in the local markets. The goal of Bill Gates chicken foundation for African countries, is help increase these vaccinated chicken to 30 percent which is currently 5 percent around countries in African. These vaccinated chicken by Bill Gates is highly resistant to disease and premature date so that those who invested their resources to care for these livestock can have maximum returns as ROI, if ideas is succeeded ending poverty according to him will be achieved in African communities.
About 100,000 chickens have been plan to release for African to achieve these aims of the world billionaire. I believe these goals is simple enough to achieve and I highly supported it, if the chicken will be allowed to be exported into developed countries for consumption. I do not want to hear that Bill Gates chicken is only meant for Africans to consume.
