With this gift, you’ll help our partners provide training and supplies for a family to raise chickens, providing them with nutritious eggs to eat and a source of income too.

How your gift helps

By purchasing this gift, you are supporting food and livelihoods projects run by Tearfund’s partners around the world. Thank you for your support.

Making an income is not easy in the drought-prone part of India where Besamiya (pictured) lives with her family. Tearfund’s Christian partner EFICOR works with communities here to introduce new agricultural approaches and enhance land cultivability to increase income and resilience.

Around the world, Tearfund’s partners are supporting farmers through tools and resources to help them build sustainable livelihoods – including by providing training and supplies to raise chickens. Eggs provide a source of nutrition for a family, and a means of earning an income too.
