HOW IT WORKS
5 chickens comprising a mix of a rooster, some hens, chicks plus 6 months of feed are given to poor families. Qualifying criteria include: Average household income; openness to receiving training on chicken farming and counsel on developing dispositions critical for starting a small business.
An assigned Program Co-ordinator will come along-side families to train with follow-up chicken rearing guidance, including advice on how to generate recurring income streams through the sale of eggs and hens, and expanding the farm by setting aside eggs to multiply their chick stock.
Nurturing relationships are a vital priority. In addition to modelling love, patience and encouragement, the Program Co-ordinator also educates families on the importance of being responsible and accountable for their actions, honesty and other general dispositions critical to success.
RETURN & MULTIPLICATION
At the end of one cycle of approximately 8 months, recipient families are required to return 5 chicks back to the Program Co-ordinator as a form of deferred repayment. This provides a sustainable livelihood for the Program Co-ordinator and his family. In addition, it is also a regular source of chickens for the program to expand in reaching and helping more families in need.
