New Project Announcement: Collective Chicken Coop!June 15, 2012
Kitechild is very excited to announce the launch of our newest micro-project! Our goal is to build a collective chicken coop for three orphanage homes in Kenya. The coop will give the homes access to their own sustainable food source in a region where food insecurity issues have caused food prices to triple. Eggs will become a regular part of the children’s diet, which currently consists of just two starchy meals per day. Additionally, homes will be able to sell eggs at the market as a source of income. As food expenditures decrease and homes begin to earn income, they will be able to reallocate funds towards better nutrition, healthcare, and educational access for the children.
At Kitechild we seek to aid orphanages on the path to financial self-sufficiency. Homes tend to be very dependent on outside donations that may vary month to month. A stable source of food and income will bring three Kenyan orphanages that much closer to being financially independent and better able to support the healthy development of their children.
We launched our fundraising campaign this week, and have only 28 days to achieve our goal! We want to thank you, our network of followers, fans, volunteers, and donors for being the catalyst to our campaign launch!
