Help Children Grow and Flourish this Spring


Help Children GrowWhat do chickens, pigs and vegetable seeds all have in common?

They’re Gifts of Love and Hope that you, as a ChildFund International supporter, can give to families this spring to improve their quality of life.

When you purchase chickens, ducks and other livestock for families in our program countries, not only do you ensure that children receive nutritious food from meat, milk and eggs, you also provide families with a sustainable, renewable resource.

ChildFund trains families in animal husbandry for increased production, which generates income to help parents send their children to school, purchase supplies and medicine to keep them healthy.

Think of the chickens, ducks, cows, goats and pigs in our catalog as “living gifts.” They  live on, helping others long after your initial purchase.

Believe it: the gift of livestock can change an entire community.

With the gift of vegetable seeds or fruit tree seedlings, families in Mexico, Mozambique, The Gambia and other program countries support one of ChildFund’s basic building blocks: good nutrition.

When families join forces in a community to build flourishing vegetable gardens and fruit orchards, they maintain a healthy, stable source of nourishing food for their families.

Healthier families lead to a healthier, more prosperous community. As children grow, they acquire vocational skills to expand the gardens and orchards into a sustainable source of income.
