South Africa: Build an Income Generating Farm
A warm thank you to all of our donors for contributing to Thanda’s Build a Farm Campaign. With your kind donations so far, Thanda has purchased 9 chickens and built housing for its egg laying project. The hens lay an average of 5 eggs per day. These eggs are sold to the community and are also used to feed the children in Thanda’s programmes. The demand for these eggs is huge as they are inexpensive to purchase and provide a nutritious source of energy that people in this rural are in need of. The need for eggs is so high that Thanda plans topurchase more hens to cater for this demand.
Thanda students are also excited to have chickens at the Thanda Community Centre. Kids were enthusiastically involved in building a chicken tractor and extending the chicken coop. Having chickens at Thanda has also become a learning tool as children are taught to raise and care for animals and they learn entrepreneurship skills involved in selling eggs.
Please continue to help Thanda with this initiative as the project is starting to gain momentum and recognition in the community; it is making a positive change in the lives of people in this rural area.
