Afghan women have been left behind in terms of education and social equality as they live in a country still battling violence and civil strife. Many families live in poverty and food insecurity with women suffering the most. This project will help families by providing a food source and an income from the sale of eggs.


Families will be trained in caring for poultry. The birds will be raised for meat and eggs with proceeds from sales being a homegrown source of income. The women will gain valuable skills and self-confidence from learning how to care for a flock of chickens. The families will have a food source.

Long-Term Impact

200 families will benefit from this project with poultry produce and income from sales. The project will help pull families out of poverty and food insecurity giving the women a way for them to provide for their families, earn money and gain respect for their abilities.
