Lesson Taught
Poultry Day 3 
Ida went to Maliga to help and guide the community members on how to build chicken coops. Ida first taught the community members the importance of a chicken coop. It saves chics from being eaten by wild animals, birds and from being rained on because rain kills them. A member can do other things when not worried of what might happen to the chics as long as food and water is provided inside the coop. A coop reduces risks of acquiring diseases caused by chickens when people share the house. It’s cheap to build because the materials used are locally available. A member from Nabikenge (Isabirye)pledged to help Maliga community to build simple and long lasting coops to avoid building every now and then. Ida invited Isabirye from Nabikenge to come and guide the community on how to build simple cheap coops since he designed the onesie his village. Isabirye and Ida demonstrated as the community was learning. Kasinga asked Isabirye if he can make it a small income whereby he charges some few shillings to those who will provide the materials and he builds for them because they believe he is the perfect person to do it. They agreed to provide all the materials that Ida and Isabirye told them, then the community collectively will decide on how to facilitate Isabirye. This will help them practice sustainability.
