LAKE ZONE SEMINARS
Silverlands Marketing Team conducted seminars in early February throughout Tanzania’s Lake Zone, raising awareness on the nutritional and financial potential of SASSO Chicken. Seminars were held in over 10 districts across Mwanza, Geita and Shinyanga Regions. Silverlands strives to teach rural communities, focusing on women, about the opportunities involved in keeping SASSO.
SASSO is a highly efficient dual-purpose bird that can be raised for both meat and eggs with the resilience and adaptability characteristic of a local chicken. Through the APMI program, Silverlands has a mobilized Field Team working directly with rural communities to support accessibility channels into these environments.
