Egg Laying Hens for Haitian Families


Summary is working to fight hunger and malnutrition in Haiti. With your help, we can provide egg laying hens, and the materials and instruction to build coops for the people of La Gonave, an island of Haiti. This program is part of a larger initiative called The Other Side Campaign, a partnership between, The Mad Girls, Dreamweaver Foundation, The Literacy Site, &, dedicated to improving the lives of the people of La Gonave.

La Gonave, an island of Haiti, is made up of mostly limestone. The soil is nutrient poor and difficult to harvest sustainable crops. Water resources are greatly impacted by the dry season, making it problematic for the island's 120,000 residents to farm and feed their families. They do not currently have a regular source of protein. In addition, the remoteness of the island makes the task of importing goods incredibly challenging.


By providing egg laying hens, and the materials and instruction to build coops, to the people of La Gonave, we contribute much needed sustenance to these families. Students and families who receive hens will be taught how to build coops, take care of the hens, and collect eggs, so the families of La Gonave can have a constant source of food. Going forward, the families will be able to breed their hens which will also be a source of income for them.

Long-Term Impact

"Egg Laying Hens for Haitian Families" is part of The Other Side Campaign, through which we'll also be funding the community's first secondary school. We believe that by investing in education, we can open the door of opportunity to help those struggling with health, literacy, and self-esteem by providing resources, education, and a helping hand. Egg laying hens for families will provide students access to the regular nutrition they need to make the most of this new education opportunity.
