By Thelma Sithole | Project Leader

Thank you so much for your continued support of this project. We are pleased to announce that the "Chicken Project" is a big sucess. To date the six women who are participating in the project have bought 4 batches of chicks (100 chicks per batch). To date the women made a profit of $600.00. They divided the money among themselves resulting in each woman receiving $100 from selling the chickens. The women are very grateful to have have earned some money to help their families. This money goes a long way in these rural areas. Here is what some of the women had to say:

In Their Own Words

"We are very grateful to the donors for helping us. This money helped us a lot. This project has really lifted up our spirits.  I cant find the words to adequately express how we feel.  I take care of two grand children. With this money I was able to buy food and medicines for my grandchildren. Thank you so much for giving us the money to start the project. This project has changed our lives!

 

"I also want to thank the donors for all their help. With the money I earned I was able to buy school supplies and food for my family.

 

"I didnt know where I was going to get money to pay may son's exam fee. This money came in handy.  Thank you so much for helping us"

 

"With the money I earned I was able to buy food and shoes for my children. I thank the donors for all their kindness. I feel fortunate to be among the women who were chosen to participate in this project"

What We Are Planning For 2016

  • Build a bigger chicken coop with several compartments. This way the women dont have to wait until they have sold all the chickens inorder for them to purchace the next batch. They will place the new chicks in one compartment and put the older chickens in another compartment.
  • Raise egg laying chickens as well

As you can see from the attached pictures and from what the women had to say, you are playing a major role in tranforming their lives.

Thank you so much for all your support!!!

Happy New Year!

Best wishes,

Thelma
