【ミャンマー少数民族支援】村落ファンド設立支援・「ブタ銀行」がスタート!(2) 【Myanmar Ethnic Minority Support project】 Support establishment of village fund and “Pig bank” have started.

ウェッゴー シャーネーデー(ブタを探しています)。ミャンマー、パ・アン事務所の大場です。前回は、コクワ村のブタ銀行委員会メンバーが、かわいい子ブタを購入したところまでお伝えしました。ブタ銀行の詳細はコチラ。
"Wet Ko Shar Nay Tal" (“I am looking for a pig.” in local language). I am Oba, project manager of NICCO Hpa-An Myanmar Office. I introduced the story when Khoke Khwar village “Pig bank committee” members purchased piglets by then. Find out more about “Pig bank” at http://kyoto-nicco.seesaa.net/article/427107313.html


■ ブタ銀行の成功に必要なこと The necessary things for success of “Pig bank”

It is important that pig breeding families rear piglets to grow big and sell them, in addition they get an enough income from price of selling pigs so that “Pig bank” becomes successful project. We put forward the preparation for introduction of “Pig bank” project with enough consideration about name and number of pigs, in addition the improvement of handling and feeding techniques.

The name of pig is the cross breeding between an improved hybrid breed is reared in the large pig breeding farmer and a local breed. This name of pig is well adapted to village environment and there is an advantage because they can be grown up healthy if we rear them with proper breeding technique. The villagers who reared local breed had trouble such as “even though we bought piglet it can’t grow up enough after one year or half year” with it from before because there are individual differences from the degree of growth among each pig.
And also we purchased piglets have already had the necessary vaccination supplied by public service at around 45 days old which finishes the lactation period.

The number of rental pig is four per one family. By any chance one piglets dies by disease or unfortunate accident a family who lost it can repay by income from selling other piglet, the villagers can sufficiently compensate a loss with reasonable effort, and the benefit from circulation of “Pig bank” system can maintain the health and sanitation support activity in the village so that we decided that number of rental pig.
28 piglets are delivered to Khoke Khwar village where 7 applicants start to rear pigs. Even though piglets must be surprised by a lot of villagers surrounded them and a competition suddenly started they were brought to a pig breeding family safely.

■ ブタを健康にそだてるために For rearing piglets in good health

There is a condition that applicants have already attended a lecture of breeding technique is taken place with the cooperation of an expert is dispatched from the government. They have learnt the necessary knowledge and technique of breeding pig such as from the basic knowledge of pig to the important point of building a pigsty, the method of protecting pig from disease and breeding technique in sanitary condition and what kind of ingredient pig needs and how to make its food and feed them for 2 days. And also, they went on the study tour to some family in the other village has already reared same name of pig as of this project. Our applicants and a pig breeding family we previously mentioned in the other village exchanged their view of anxious and unclear points in the breeding method.

Not only applicants who rent pigs at the first time but also who are waiting for the second or the third opportunity take part in the lecture.

The livestock department officer explains the vaccination from Kyainseikgyi Township.

Piglets have gone around to each pig breeding family. We prepare to purchase other piglets for the other four villages. And also our staff has a certification in veterinary science observes the pig rearing situation regularly so as to answer queries from the families, give drags if they need to cure pig of disease and support them in various ways. We will support the villagers to build their capacity and rear piglets to grow up in good health with promoting cooperation with public service.

【ケニア事務所】 エコサンデモ農地 The demonstration farm of “Eco-san manure”, Kenya

Mirenbe bo-shi(Hi everybody, How are you?)
I am Harada from the NICCO Kenya office.


■ 「エコサン肥料」を使ったデモンストレーション農場 The demonstration of using “Eco-san manure”

“Mirenbe” means peace in Luhya language spoken in Bushiangara village. Using “Mirenbe” as a term of greeting, it means “How are you?”
Today, I would like to talk about the demonstration of using “Eco-san manure” from Eco-san toilet.

Ecological Sanitation Toilet, so-called “Eco-san toilet” is human waste separation type toilet which is environmentally healthy. “Eco-san toilet” is built by NICCO in Asia and Africa.


Click here for more understandable information ↓

We can hygienically compost manure from night soil treatment by using Eco-san toilet.. NICCO has promoted circular mechanism, after excreting the things we eat and drink from our body, we compose manure from these things, and then composed manure are returned to the soil to produce food via Eco-san toilet,

However, there was no such mechanism of utilizing human waste as compost in Kenya before. It is completely new experiment for the people of Bushiangara village. Therefore everybody initially doubted whether composed manure is highly effective to improve soil and hygienically safe. It would be quite difficult to understand the benefit of Eco-san toilet for the villager even if we explained there was nothing problem with using Eco-san toilet because they didn’t have such a custom before.

■ 「エコサン肥料」比較栽培の結果 The result of comparison using“Eco-san manure”with not using

Therefore, we arrange the demonstration farm to let people compare Eco-san manure cultivation and non- Eco-san manure cultivation with their own eyes. The farm is established alongside the main busy street in the village. The farm is divided into four compartments and planted maize (white corn); staple food of Kenya. The first compartment(compartmentT) was provided with diluted urine and Eco-san manure. The second compartment(compartmentU) was provided with diluted urine only. The third compartment(compartmentV) is cultivated using chemical fertilizer and the fourth compartment (compartmentW)e was provided without any fertilizer or manure.

The farmers have been taking care of the maize so carefull under the guidance of NICCO staff that it grew very well. This picture shows the result.


It might be little confusing, but the four compartments are arranged in the order of, from this side, compartmentW,V,U,T. As you can see, no maize is grown in the plot with chemical fertilizer(compartmentsV) and without any fertilizer(compartmentW).

The plot with diluted urine is here(compartmentU).

The compartment with eco-san manure and diluted urine is here.(compartmentT)

The result made us surprised because the gap between them was bigger than we had expected. According to the owner of the farmland, the land was poor soil, and even though he used chemical fertilizer, nothing was grown in the land. This is the reason why the maize also did not grow at all in this time even in the compartment with chemical fertilize.

Then, why the maize in the compartmentT(with diluted urine and eco-san manure) grew up cheerfully? According to the officials and Kenya Ministry of Agriculture this land was acidic due to excessive use of chemical fertilizers and a huge amount of rainfall. Therefore alkaline components included in eco-san manure and urine changed the acid nature of the farm, and which lead to successful result.

Since farm land of Bushiangara village is acidic in nature, so we expect that the diluted urine and eco-san manure have a great impact on the farm there. The farmers of demonstration farm are satisfied with this result. They are eager to use the manure next year as well.

In the next blog, I would like to write about the field day when we show villagers the result of the demonstration farm..
Horonane! (See you!)
