Heifer Sponsors Animal Production Project

The US non-profit organization, Heifer International, has sponsored US$40,000 for a project to improve family income of farmers in the central coast through integrated animal production in Thua Thien-Hue.

Heifer International's project aims to improve family income of farmers through integrated animal production in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue  

The project was handed over to Thua Thien-Hue Province People’s Committee and will be carried out at Quang Vinh Commune in Quang Dien District.

The project will provide 80 female bulls and four male bulls to 40 poor families in Quang Vinh Commune.

Each family will be given a VND1.5 million (around US$100) loan to carry out their production plan. After 36 months, the original families will refund their money, and additional families will benefit from pass-ons.

The families will also receive training in animal management, livestock management, crop production and so on.

The project will last until 2010.
