When you buy charity chickens the recipient receives three chickens (six chickens with the match!) which doesn't take long to turn into a secure supply of eggs and a rich source of protein.
Hen house supplies, feed, and training to raise healthy, productive chickens are included as part of your chicken gift.
While gender equality training is an important part of our programs, many women in sub-saharan Africa are still prevented from owning land. Fortunately, chickens take up little space so when you buy charity chickens you're giving a mom financial independence and the chance to lift her family out of poverty.
For just $25 you’ll be buying three chickens (6 with the match) that produce about 1,000 eggs each year allowing families to sell or trade the surplus for other food products.
In a short space of time Medina (pictured) went from being a wife and grandmother to a widow and sole caretaker of her two young grandchildren. She could barely keep her grandsons fed or clothed.
Thanks to a donation of three chickens plus the training and ongoing support she receives, Medina's chickens have begun to lay eggs, which she sells at the local market to earn an income for her family.
This new income has been used to purchase food and clothing for the children, and to make small improvements to her house. It’s also meant that Medina has been able to keep her eldest grandson Alliy in school and she has been able to cover the costs of the supplies he needs.
Buy Charity Chickens here. We'll source them there
The chickens you purchase will be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.
