The Project will provide to 100 orphans and their families with a starter flock of 2 hens and 1 Cock. A flock of chicks can help families add nourishing, life-sustaining eggs to their inadequate diets. A good hen can lay up to 200 eggs a year - plenty to eat, share or sell to pay for other basic child needs. The project will lift families out poverty and enable them move toward self-reliance. Gift of chickens and training will mean food, income and a brighter future for an orphan.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
HIV/AIDS has killed many young parents living the children in poverty and hunger. To end the hunger & poverty, NIRP looks forward to empower 100 orphans and their guardians to work out of poverty and move towards self reliance. With gifts of livestock and training, NIRP help orphans and their families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. By giving a child a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will provide 2 hens and 1 cock to each child and their family. Your gift of chickens and training will mean food, income and a brighter future for a struggling family. When the chicken starts giving eggs the family can eat, share or sell to pay for other child needs. Even the offspring can be sold or grown to continue the poultry project. Here the targeted children and families move out of poverty and move to self reliance.
