Chickens open 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 Brazil, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Guinea, Indonesia, Kenya, Liberia, Mexico, Mozambique, the Philippines, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Uganda and Zambia have requested the gift of chickens.
