Provide Egg Laying Hens for Haitian Families
Roll over image to zoom in
Provide a constant source of food for the families of La Gonâve.
La Gonâve, an island of Haiti, is made up of mostly limestone. The soil that is available 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. 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 Gonâve, you can 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 Gonâve can have a constant source of food.
You can help! Just $5.00 helps provide egg laying hens to Haitian families.
Report from the Field
The chicken project in Matenwa is yielding better than expected results. Many of the hens began laying eggs ahead of schedule! Everyday, children from Lekòl Kominotè Matènwa school are assigned to either feed the chickens or clean the coops. Their hard work is paying off! Every week, more and more hungry students are starting their day with a protein rich egg for breakfast.
