The Zanu PF Mashonaland Central Women’s League has commended the First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe for spearheading a poultry project that is set to transform the livelihood of women across the country.

Over 400 Zanu PF Women’s League members drawn from all the eight districts in Mashonaland Central Province have attended a chicken rearing training workshop in Bindura to prepare them for a massive poultry project being spearheaded by Dr Mugabe.

The poultry project has the potential to transform the livelihoods of women in the province if they manage to achieve the programme’s goals, said the party’s provincial chairman Cde Dickson Mafios when he officially opened the workshop.

Zanu PF Mashonaland Central Women’s League chairperson Cde Mercy Jonga commended the First Lady for mobilising resources for the project which will see 30 000 chickens being distributed among the country’s ten province.

The chicken rearing training workshops which are being carried out throughout the country are being held under the theme, “Empowering Women for Increased Participation in the Economy”.
