The Africa Poultry Multiplication Initiative (APMI) is a multi-year project implemented by the World Poultry Foundation in Nigeria and Tanzania. The program aims to increase ownership of dual-purpose birds (DPBs) to improve smallholder farmer (SHF) livelihoods. Implemented by 3 local private-sector partners (2 in Tanzania and 1 in Nigeria), the program aims to impact over 2.0 million rural households by providing complete value chain opportunities for poultry production. This includes access to appropriate improved genetics, affordable quality feed, quality vaccines, technical extension training, and a market development program for the offtake of the excess meat and eggs produced.
To reach APMI’s goals of increasing women’s access to poultry production resources and increasing consumption of chicken and eggs by rural communities in Nigeria and Tanzania. Tanager works with the three APMI poultry companies by providing technical assistance (TA) to better understand the value of gender and nutrition integration as well as supporting them design messages or outreach strategies, that will allow them to reach their objectives.
Tanager is seeking to contract a firm or individual with the capacity to conduct a training for field-level officers’ that enables them to deliver women’s inclusion and nutrition messages in local communities to generate demand for the dual-breed Sasso chickens. Under the supervision of Tanager’s Nutrition Expert, the consultant will undertake the training to cover all the client’s field officers in two sessions of 3-days each.
