A really fantastic story


Here’s a new video from West Bengal featuring one of our chicken farmers called Kalyani. It was filmed in January by Olly Donnelly and our trustee, Yasmine Hilton, tells the story with the help of Chandrani Banerjee, our Head of Livelihoods in India. It’s a really positive example of how raising chickens has helped one determined woman change her life for the better. If you like it please LIKE it on Facebook using the like below – we are entering a video competition on Global Giving to show the impact Poultry Development Services is making and your support would be great! Thanks.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.
