The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) has built a modern poultry farm in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, to provide food and employment opportunities and to create new sectors in the country
The project is a part of the ‘Project for Developing Layer Poultry Farming in Somalia’. It has been implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of the Republic of Turkey, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, and Zamzam University.
As part of the project, a poultry farm with a total floor space of 198 sqm was built. As many as 1,200 ATAK-S layer chicks, equipment, vaccines and feed units were provided.
Assoc. prof. Serdar Kamanlı from the Directorate of Poultry Research Institute in Ankara trained Somali academics and specialists at Zamzam University in order to share Turkey’s knowledge of poultry. After the training, the farm was put into service with the participation of Turkish and Somali officials.
