Chickens and Eggs

Chickens and Eggs

$5


Description

For families facing poverty, putting food on the table can be a daily challenge. Help provide training and supplies for a family to raise chickens, giving them nutritious eggs to eat and a source of income too.

How your gift helps

In rural central India, people facing poverty often lack the opportunities to earn a productive income. But with the support of Tearfund’s local Christian partner Mussoorie Gramin Vikas Samiti (MGVS), families are enjoying stable livelihoods and good food through initiatives like organic chicken raising. Organic eggs like the ones pictured earn nearly double the amount of standard eggs, and the training provided by MGVS is helping community members establish businesses that are sustainable and beneficial for the wider community.
