Somali Poultry Farm

Formed in Somalia in February 2012, the Somali Poultry Farm now produces 5,000 broiler chicks and 18,000 layer chicks per week. It has reduced Somalia’s dependency on imported frozen chicken by producing much more within the country itself. The company employs local youth to drive its production, providing them with training and a regular income.

The Awards invites you to vote for who you think should win. Organisers point out that the shortlisted nominees have no association with any negative tribalistic activity and have a respectable and honourable reputation within our community. Therefore, they encourage you to vote for the individuals and entities that you think are worthy of winning the award.

ATM is proud to sponsor this year’s Awards, which will take place on 15th March 2017 in London.

Happy voting!
