Melanie Zanto, a single mother of four, is a smallholder farmer. Like many of her neighbors, shes tried to raise chickens before, but without access to vaccinations, her entire flock died. Trained by LIVES, she now has over 50 birds. And, shes also been trained to be a Community Livestock Worker, earning additional money by becoming the local go-to resource for animal health services, and better access to vaccinations. As Melanie says, Before, I did not have enough skill or knowledge to take care of my chickens. Now I do. With this extra money, I can now feed my children.
