About the APMI project
The Africa Poultry Multiplication Initiative (APMI) is a multi-year project implemented by the World Poultry Foundation in Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. The program aims to increase ownership of dual-purpose birds (DPBs) to improve smallholder farmer (SHF) livelihoods. Implemented by 4 local private-sector partners (2 in Tanzania, 1 in Nigeria and 1 in Zimbabwe), 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, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. Tanager works with the four 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.
The program has four goals.
• Increased poultry production and productivity
• Increased rural household income
• Improved household nutrition
• Increased women’s empowerment
