Rabbits Support Education, Kenya
Two students and one teacher attended the 2016 LEI Program from Masikonde Secondary School took what they learned and applied it to the business of raising rabbits. The school donated the materials for building the animal pens and the teachers helped secure funds for animal food. For $20, they were able to secure 5 rabbits to raise and sell. They have already increased inventory to 21 rabbits and have attracted other community groups who wish to learn the business model. Profits are ear-marked for orphan children at their school unable to pay school fees.
Though small in scale, the students proved that they can succeed in developing and operating their own enterprise as a team, and in the process teach others what they learned from the LEI Program.
