Chicks for Change

 

Chickens might be small and cheep, but they can have a big impact

When you buy a chicken or other small farm animal through Chicks for Change, you help a woman in a developing country establish a small business. You empower her to break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for herself and her family.

Your Easter gift can empower a woman like Ranjulata to change her life. 

Through a community grant, Ranjulata - a wife and mother in Tudubali, India - received 200 chickens. Through the sale of chicks and eggs, she has established a sustainable source of income.

"It helps us to generate income and strengthen our financial standard. It's helping us fulfil our needs," says Ranjulata. "Now I am even more passionate about my children's education and health."
