Chickens

Families in places like El Salvador and Honduras have little food and even less money. Providing families with chickens, along with all the necessary equipment and training, can solve both of these problems. The family will eat and sell the eggs and can use the manure to grow healthy vegetables. Plus, some of these families will also be supported as they start and manage a community-owned poultry business. Not only do the families increase their income as they provide eggs to meet the local demand, but they’ll also be supporting school-feeding programs in the area.

“Now We Can Survive”

Every year, Laura’s household income used to stop for four months. Traditionally, her husband goes out in his boat every day to fish in the ocean. But during the rainy season, the weather is too unforgiving.

“When I heard about ADRA’s chicken coop idea, I was excited,” Laura says. “Our community embraced the project because it’s an extra source of income. We can also eat the eggs and save some money.”

It was Laura’s own idea to elevate the coops, protecting the chickens from the water that overflows everything when the rain comes. Today, she nurtures 60 chickens, which is more profitable for her than cooking and selling food.

“I thank ADRA for the help they have given us,” Laura says. “I feel happy for this blessing from God, for touching the hearts of the brothers and sisters who have offered us this opportunity.”
