Counting Our Chickens
Thank you! Gracias! Chjonte! During our recent Chicken Project campaign, we raised funds for 2,240 chickens! This means that 112 indigenous women will each receive a set of 20 chicks, feed and training in 2023.
We invite you to watch this video - a personal thank you message from one of the participants who just loves her fat and healthy chickens!
