Megabridge: Youth developed a rare bird farming program successfully increasing tourism in the community
Kenya – Megabridge received a $5000 grant from GPA in February, 2015 to develop a community-based rare bird farming project in rural Embu County youth. The project was an excellent example of the “out of the box” thinking that occurs when grantors listen to the needs of youth. The farm promotes tourism to the rural area and supports local educators who often bring students by for field trips. Youth participants support the program and themselves through admission fees. At the conclusion of the 8 month grant over 200 youth had participated in the project, it is expanding to include other animals and being replicated in 5 other rural areas.
