The Phase III of CDP started in 2021 and was designed to last a year. The Covid-19 crisis and the unavailability of one of the crucial partners resulted in the postponement of most of the activities until

In collaboration with our partners, seven groups for the production of free-range chicken were started in three delegations of the Gabès governorate.

These seven groups (nearly 100 beneficiaries, mostly women) received professional training on poultry raising, as well as equipment, materials (such as gas heaters, mangers, drinkers) and supplies such as eggs, feed, vaccines.

Two exchange visits were organised for six groups (around 50 participants) to visit other chicken producers and established women’s cooperatives (GDAs) south of the Gabès governorate and in the Medenine

Several monitoring visits were also made to groups started in the previous phases of CDP (three groups, nearly 50 women) in order to develop networking and knowledge sharing opportunities.
