A Teacher From Laikipia Who Sells Chicken And Eggs, Uses His Salary To Pay Fees For Needy Students

His name is Chris Saidimu. A teacher at Somutwo Primary School in Laikipia West who has been forced to use his own money and even acquire loans to keep learners from poor backgrounds in school. This is also through the sale of eggs and chicken. The teacher went to the lengths of sponsoring exams for pupils in Standard Seven and Eight.Saidimu started the project after he realised most of his learners lacked the basics school materials and he took his salary as a means to support the children. However, this was not enough to even sustain the learners for a term.

The teachers started a project that would generate revenue that he uses to facilitate the learners. Saidimu approached the Somutwo Primary School headteacher with his proposal and the school allocated him a piece of land for his project.He set up a chicken rearing project with the hope of raising revenue and helping the children. With all the savings he had, a few loans and assistance from a few friends, he started Arid Poultry Farm in 2019.

From the revenues generated through the chicken project, Saidimu managed to drill a borehole for the school and end the perennial water shortage in the school.Learners and the community also benefit from the same directly and indirectly.
