Progress at Ashirvad

chickens ashirvad

 

Our chicken project in India is continuing to make progress. Some of the chickens are now almost three months old and should be laying eggs soon. This project works to improve the nutritional and educational needs of the 79 children living at Ashirvad Home. How does it work? These chickens are sold in the market and the profits pay for fresh fruit and also fund computers and a teacher for the children. 

Did you know that plants grow faster and larger in greenhouses? This #funfactfriday means a lot to our greenhouse project at the Watoto Wema Home in Nairobi, Kenya. The produce that is grown through this sustainable micro-project supplements the children’s diets with healthy produce and is also sold in the market. The profits from selling these veggies will go towards educational costs for the children. These greenhouses are changing lives! 

Good news coming from united-nations: More girls are in school than ever before! And according to unicef, if every child learns to read there will be 171 million less people living in absolute poverty. Our sustainable projects work to generate profits that are used to pay for education for children around the world, like our greenhouses and dairy cows in Kenya & our chicken farm in India. Change, not charity is the key! mdgs.un.org
