Rearing chickens can provide extra food and income for families facing poverty. This gift contributes to projects that help people access training and resources to improve their livelihoods by raising animals like chickens.

How your gift helps

In a mountainous village north of Kathmandu, Nepal, Ratna Kumari tends a thriving poultry farm. What started small – just 50 chicks – has grown under Ratna’s care to a flourishing brood of 200 chickens, with far-reaching impacts. “I am feeling proud to be a gainful entrepreneur,” Ratna shares. “It has helped me a lot to manage all my family expenses, children’s educations and regular monthly saving.” Ratna started her poultry business with the support of TEAR’s local partner, Share and Care Nepal, who have helped thousands of Nepali families to overcome the challenges of poverty for over 25 years.
