Rabbit-Fish Farm, Ndekero
 

BACKGROUND


Our Lady of Annunciation Primary School in Ndekero village has a capacity for 350 children but currently has only 200 students. Many villagers are unable to pay school fees and/or related schooling costs for their children. As a charity and private school, it gets no support from the Kenyan Government.

The purpose of the rabbit-fish farm is to generate a regular income. The farm and income will provide opportunities and development of activities that will lead to reduced school drop outs and increase enrolment at the primary school.

Test site (27 m2) for 4 weaned rabbits in an open vegetated enclosure and a double fence of chick wire. 3 of 4 weaned rabbits were found dead one day. The cause was unknown. As there were no signs of physically injury, we ruled out the cause of predation by an animal.
