In many rural communities, family diets lack sufficient protein. Eggs provide lifesaving protein for families. Baby chicks become egg-laying chickens, which are easy to raise, and excess eggs generate added family income. Each chicken coop requires an initial investment for the structure, nesting boxes, fencing, and chicks. Your gift will provide a family with a new chicken coop and 10 chicks. As the chicks mature, they produce additional chicks offering families an ongoing source of protein and income.
