the door to health
and good nutrition.
The gift of chickens can help a family produce their
own fresh, healthy food. Raising their own chickens
means that families don’t have to buy eggs, freeing up
their hard-earned income for other needs, such as their
children’s education or health care. Even the chicken
manure is useful in making vegetable plots more fertile.
Families in Cambodia, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Guinea,
Honduras, Kenya, Mexico, Mozambique, Sierra Leone,
Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste and Uganda have requested the
gift of chickens.
