FAISALABAD: Lessons on poultry farming will be given at schools in rural areas to encourage the trend, District Secondary Education Officer Ali Ahmad Siyyan said on Sunday.
The project will be launched initially at 29 schools for girls, he said. Education Department and the Livestock Department have collaborated on it. Siyyan said all class-IV school employees, residing in government quarters, would be given six hens each for this purpose.
These hens would be provided by the University of Agriculture Faisalabad. “If this project is welcomed by the students, we will replicate it in other districts as well,” Siyyan said.
