In a press release the non-governmental organisation said it is funding the project which will entail inmates at the New Amsterdam Prison rearing 3,000 broilers.
A cheque was handed over to Director of Prisons Dale Erskine for the construction of a 100 ft x 30ft coop, at a simple ceremony hosted last Thursday at the group's Festival City location.
Inmates will be trained in poultry rearing and business management and they will receive financial incentives every month.
