Hatching a Plan!

Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we fully funded this project in just a few weeks. Josephine and her daughter Paccy are beyond grateful and excited to begin work to make the egg business a reality. We have sent the first disbursement of $300 so they can acquire materials and begin building the brick hen house inside the walls of Josephine's modest home. Walls are an important security element in Rwanda to prevent theft. Hens are highly sought after in a country of hungry people.

Once the enclosure is complete, we will send the remaining funds for the purchase of hens and feed to last at least until the hens are producing enough eggs to become self-funding. We are all hopeful that this project will be a success; it is one that could be replicated with other elder women who struggle to find ways to earn income in Rwanda.

Without your support, this would not have been possible - thank you! More news to come!
