Abstract

Engosengiu Women Farmers' Group constitutes a number of 30 members with the potential of reaching a membership base of 200 in the very near future. The Group is located at Sokoni Ward, in Arusha City Council; it was formed with the aim of combining individual efforts to increase income of the family and to insure food security, the objective being to increase productivity and income level. During the community needs assessment carried out in 2013, it was revealed that low income was the main problem among the women who were involved in poultry production. Further analysis attributed this problem to lack of poultry husbandry and entrepreneurship skills. This project aimed at strengthening the Engosengiu women group through selected areas of capacity building (training) in order to hasten achievement of the desired benefits, which are primarily vested in increased income and food security.
