Starting in March 2011, Katharina and Stefan Härter, German students of International Business and Management Studies at Hanze University of Applied Science, participated in a five-month internship in Guatemala, and investigated how Humanity First could create more employment opportunities in Masagua and conducted a 6 hospital medical feasibility study. Safeer Bhatti and Ayma Malik also assisted the Humanity First Guatemala team with research and volunteer work during the year. After exploring different routes, the idea of a poultry farm was deemed the most suitable. The concept of the project involved each family raising their own chickens that would then be collected, slaughtered, processed and sold. The Humanity First interns attended a 40-hour course provided by INTECAP on raising poultry to gather more information on the feasibility of this project. They compiled their notes and calculations into a detailed report at the end of their study.
