A microproject by Develop Africa, Inc.

Summary

This project will purchase 300 day-old chicks to launch the poultry house to benefit the Dream Home. This will provide a 3-fold benefit as follows: reliable, sustainable, on-going income towards the running costs of the orphanage, fresh eggs daily - a steady supply of high-quality protein for the orphans and an educational / learning opportunity for the orphans - where they can learn responsibility and management.

Challenge

So far, we have been able to lease the property and renovate the poultry room. Items still needed to start this venture include: 300 day-old chicks, drinkers and feeders, chicken feed and wood shavings for the floor. Your support will also help cover the costs of vaccinations / medications (to help keep the chicks healthy), water supply and other running costs.

Solution

6 months after project launch, the layers will provide daily eggs for the dream home and eggs that will be sold to cover on-going expenses of the Dream Home. This will provide a steady source of protein for the kids and also sustainable income to cover some of the expenses of the home.

Long-Term Impact

This project offers tremendous benefits in terms of being able to help deserving children grow and mature into model adults that will impact their communities and nation - and even the world.
