In many parts of the world, families don't have enough healthy food to eat. Malnourishment continues the cycle of poverty because it makes work and school difficult—especially for children, who can't learn on an empty stomach!
That's why GreaterGood.org helps provide hens to families and students in need. These chickens change lives! One hen lays an egg each day, providing a reliable source of protein for hungry people. The chickens also fertilize gardens, helping families grow more vegetables to include in their diet.
When baby chicks come along, the flock grows quickly. Enterprising students can sell the eggs or chicks to earn an income, and this helps the whole community access more healthy food.
GreaterGood.org doesn't just give people egg-laying hens—we also teach them how to build safe coops and care for their new flock!
So far, your donations have helped us distribute more than 400 hens to families in Rwanda and Haiti. You've also supported a brand new egg-laying hen program at the Matènwa Community Learning Center in Haiti. Now, all of the children at the school have eggs to eat, and daily chicken care is incorporated directly into the curriculum. Your donations are helping students build the skills they need to feed themselves and their families for a lifetime.
You can help expand our efforts to bring more egg-laying hens to families in need. With your contribution, we can give more hungry people the skills and resources they need to feed themselves and end the cycle of poverty. Donate today!
