  2. Dear Sir
    Zelalem International Research Institute is working on new poultry farm technology in Ethiopia that busts chicken farmer daily performance. The minimum package is 60 chickens per house hold and the space required is only 1 meter squire of land by the help of new patented chicken cage. In this respect we need to distribute 200,000 chickens in Ethiopia by coming Ethiopian New Year time.
    That is one means by which we can cover daily income, daily food and daily job opportunity all over the country. It also discussed on Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) in Washington DC USA last June 7-6/20012. Till now more than 2000 peoples has used both in Addis Ababa and other part of Ethiopia. They confirmed that their house hold level poverty is eradicated and they are planning to chicken farm investment.
    Please comment on this package of poverty alleviation model approved by Ethiopian intellectual property office and Zelalem International Researcher Institute is expanding it best finding all over the country. Further more if there is any means by which we may work together please do not hesitate to communicate us. Wish you all the best
    Best wish

  4. I am a masters student at the University of Nairobi in Kenya. I have just finalize all the class taught units for MA. Project Planning and Management and I am interested in a Research Project that focuses on the contextual issues of range lands, the urban sprawls and the land use changes that are making a great influence to the downward spiral of pastoral livelihoods and existence of wildlife in Kajiado dry lands, improving institutional capacity for demand-driven land-use planning and enforcement for long-term social, economic and environmental benefits. Please advice how I can get involved with your organization in this research
