Chickens

Chickens are common in rural Guatemala and eggs are a perfect food for families in poverty! For the past two years we have offered a course for women called “How to Raise Chickens at Home.” Again, most women have experience with chickens but probably don’t know how to raise them effectively and efficiently, and the course goes into detail about identifying illnesses, how to vaccinate, proper space and coop construction (even from repurposing old materials), and alternate sources of nutrition such as kitchen scraps and herbs. When the women finish the course, they receive baby chickens so they can put their new knowledge into practice immediately.
