Rabbits

This business was started by a group of 24 gay guys who bought and sold rabbits for meat. They now breed the rabbits themselves and sell not just the meat (mainly big orders to restaurants) but also the fur and the urine, which is an excellent fertiliser and growing in popularity amongst Kenya arable farmers.

The group had a very rocky start because of their sexual orientation – stigma is horrific here in Kenya – but are now established and growing. They have added another 6 young gay guys and are about to take in 6 more in January.

UPDATE SEPT 2015  We are about to develop two more groups in Uganda. Original group is now 14 youth
