Chickens provide a source of basic nutrition for children like Elvis. Fresh eggs raise the level of protein and other nutrients in a family’s diet, giving them the energy they need to work or go to school.

Speaking of education, chickens can also help children continue their studies. By selling the chickens’ eggs and offspring, families have the income they need to pay education fees and purchase school supplies for their children.

In time, the extra money can help the family buy other foods and supplies, and even share their resources with others in need.

Give the gift of two chickens today. This holiday season, you can provide hope and joy for a family in need through a gift that multiplies — literally!
