Poultry projects are very successful because most Kenyan families raise chickens and consider them their "savings accounts". If there is an

In 2013, we began a poultry project by starting with poultry eggs
that we incubated to hatching. Once the chicks are hatched, they
are placed in a brooder to keep the chicks warm until they are big
enough to survive and grow on their own in the poultry barn.
Mushrooms are quickly developing as a lucrative cash crop in Kenya. With technical support from Maseno Muliro University in Kakamega, we just completed the construction of mushroom farming structure.
Community women are employed to plant, tend and harvest the crops. It takes about 3 months for mushrooms to mature and crops are planted on varying growing cycles, ensuring year around income.
Galaxy Youth group helps market the mushrooms to wholesalers, where the mushrooms are ground up and sold in the market as a nutritional supplement.
