Kenyan grandmas often care for their grandchildren who are orphans. Therefore they work in fields. For the elderly grandmas this is hard manual labour. Moreover, it earns them just $1 a day. One Horizon’s Farming Programs for Kenyan Grandmas changes their lives of poverty and struggle.
One Horizon provides Kenyan grandmas with chickens, feed and chicken coups so they can start their own small chicken farming business. We also train the grandmas in animal husbandry and small business. This means that in eight months they are running their own successful small farming business. Their days of poverty are behind them. Therefore the grandmas’ stress eases. They are able to provide food, shelter, clothing and an education for their grandchildren.
Your gift of a chicken coup will house 200 chickens. Chicken coups are vitally important for the breeding cycle. Young chicks need to be kept warm and dry. Your coup also protects the growing chickens from predators. It is a spacious and secure place where free range chickens thrive. Most importantly, it is a gift that will help change a Kenyan grandma’s life forever.
