The Initiative

Due to the high cost and manpower required to keep and maintain a poultry in a place like St Benedict monastery Ewu, both of which the monastery do not have much of,  the monks have been maintaining a small poultry. This is part of the commitment of the monastery to diversify the source of income.

The Challenge

 Currently, the monastery is only able to afford and maintain an average of 1000 birds in a  which is a far cry from about 50,000 needed to make the project viable. The poultry is currently run by one brother, two memebers of staff and another brother monk as an assistant. The running cost compared to the income from the monastery makes the project hardly worth keeping alive.

Help Needed

To this end, the monk of St Benedict monastery Ewu would greatly appreciate the support of friends of the monastery towards upgrading and sustaining the project. You can be a benefactor in this regard. So the monastery is usuing this medium to ask all who which to support the monastery in making this project worthwhile.
