Around six hundred widows and poor women will benefit from the six-month project, which will be completed at the cost of 109,000 US dollars.

Brekhna Yaftali, head of the Marwa Cultural Organisation, which is responsible for the project, told Pajhwok Afghan News each widow was provided with 15 chickens to run a home-made poultry farm.

He said the 600 women were trained for three months on how to look after the chickens and use them as a source of income. During the remaining three months, the women would keep the chickens in their homes and sell the eggs in the market.
