Dear Project of the Month Club Member,
Last year, COVID-19 forced Shoulder to Shoulder, Inc, to pause much of their work providing food for under-resourced families in Honduras—but they couldn’t be stopped for long!
This month, we’re thrilled to introduce their newest initiative, which has been selected as our October Project of the Month: Hens Hatching Hope.
This multifaceted project helps women gain financial independence and provides vital nutrition for more than 300 kids who often don’t have enough to eat. How? Eggs! Every day, the Shoulder to Shoulder team works to support one woman in communities across Honduras by providing hens and helping her develop a thriving flock. Then, surplus eggs are given to other mothers in the community when they take their children to local health centers.
Executive Director Laura Failla Manship shared this message when she learned Hens Hatching Hope had been selected as the Project of the Month:
“There is nothing more satisfying than watching children grow and thrive. There is also nothing more satisfying than helping women find ways to support their families. Hens Hatching Hope is a Win-Win project! These funds will help us to expand from the current 300 recipients—our goal is to enroll 400 children in the project.”

Thank you so much for your compassion.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
