Help provide flocks of chickens to families in need.
In many parts of the world, families don't have enough healthy food to eat. Malnourishment continues the cycle of poverty because it makes work and school difficult—especially for children, who can't learn on an empty stomach!
That's why GreaterGood.org is committed to alleviating poverty in communities around the world, both by providing basic food & care and through providing tools & resources to individuals and communities for self-sustaining economic opportunity.
Through GreaterGood.org’s egg-laying hen program, smallholder farmers are given hens and taught how to care for them including building their coops. The hen’s eggs provide a reliable source of nutrition for the farmer and his family. As baby chicks come along, the farmer’s flock grows, and he is now able to produce enough eggs to either be sold for income or given to students at impoverished schools.
In Haiti, for instance, two farmers’ flocks of hens are now able to provide 200 children at Institute Edeline with protein in their daily school meals. This is so important as school is sometimes the only time when a child eats, and now they can have an even healthier meal. Children who have access to nutritious meals do better in school and are less susceptible to illness, which can ultimately lead to a higher chance of success in their adult lives. This program supports numerous communities around the world where there is extreme poverty, hunger and malnutrition.
You can help expand our efforts to help families in need in communities around the world where there is extreme poverty, hunger and malnutrition. Just $18 provides a flock of hens and a coop for 1 family. With your contribution, we can give more hungry people the skills and resources they need to feed themselves and end the cycle of poverty.
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
