We feel it is important to use photography as a method of tracking the progress of the project so we can share with our friends and supporters. We currently do not own a professional camera. We hope to get our own camera as soon as possible, to solve the ongoing cost of camera rentals.
CAMERA RENTAL COSTS : is £14 per day.
Eggs and chicken are a great source of protein
Selling eggs and food provides the family with an ongoing source of revenue
Extra income allows families to pay for things like their children’s schooling
This is SO exciting. Everybody who gets chickens gives some of the grown to another family in need…so the impact is exponential!
Program Recipient responsibilities:
To care for and ensure the chicks grow and remain healthy and strong. To return, 25 grown chickens after 2 months, back to ASKD to keep the program running.
The project needs routine checkups. This is very challenging at the moment due to fuel costs to travel back and forth between communities, and cost of feed.. Once this is all taken care of, we believe everything will be kept running efficiently.
This program will require ongoing donations to keep it running.
Your donation will change someone's life.
