What if you could make a difference?

We are putting hens in the hands of disadvantaged women in three villages in Afghanistan. Household poultry production is a critical component of food security and income for people living in poor rural communities. Complementing our successful goat projects, we  are providing the means for Afghan women to move themselves closer to self-sufficiency. 


Women, the elderly, and small children can care for poultry more easily than other livestock. Poultry eggs and meat provide vital nutrition, including key micro-nutrients that are often missing in the diets of poor people.


Overseen by our Afghan partners the Women's Education for a Better Tomorrow and the Shindand Women's Social Foundation, the participating women will receive training and support to insure their brood of hens moves them closer to self-sufficiency and out of poverty. In some instances, a UN World Food Program grant will provide food for the women and their families during their training. With few opportunities, these women will now have a self-sustaining means of supporting their families. Think of the generational investment in women learning skills they can pass on to their daughters.
