This week’s story from DRC features the same topic as our Scripts of the week: raising rabbits.

Rabbits can be of great social and economic value to both the family and the community at large. They provide meat, a source of soil fertility, and other products, and can be quickly sold for cash or turned into a nutritious meal when needed. With careful attention, rabbits are not difficult to raise, and can be an important source of income and nourishment, especially because they can be raised by any member of the family.

In this special two-part interview series, a famous Nigerian rabbit farmer and retired agricultural extension worker talks about how raising rabbits can reduce poverty and create jobs. In the first part of the interview, we learn about the many benefits of raising rabbits. In the second, we learn the basics of caring for and feeding rabbits.
