77 rabbits have been given to some women groups in the Upper East Region for breeding purposes.
When the animals multiply, the offspring would be collected and distributed to other women groups in other areas.
The breeding and sale of rabbits are expected to be an alternative source of livelihood for the women within the groups. It is also supposed to supplement their protein intake and help them meet their nutritional needs.
This came to light when the Upper East Regional Director of the Food and Agriculture spoke on the Day Break Upper East Show yesterday, August 29, 2022.
“They [the women] are supposed to breed and distribute them to other farmers. That one came from us at the regional level through the initiative of the animal production officer.”
“We want to see if it will succeed and then in future, we expand it to other districts,” he said.
