200 Chickens Given to 100 Families

100 families in the Northwest of Haiti received a rooster and a hen for breeding as a sustainable solution to food insecurity.

100 Gallons of Feed Distributed

Each family received 4 liters (approximately 1 gallon) of corn at the start of the project to be ground for feeding the chickens.

20 Widows Enrolled

The project committee decided to ensure that the most vulnerable members of the community were included in the program. As a result, 20 widows, 13 eldery, 3 disabled, and 2 blind individuals were selected as beneficiaries.

96 chicken coops constructed

To minimize loss of chickens to predators, participants were required to have chicken coops constructed prior to receiving chickens.

200 Chickens Vaccinated

All chickens in the program were vaccinated to protect the chickens from diseases common to chickens in Haiti.

1 Veterinarian Hired

An experienced veterinarian was hired to administer vaccines, lead mandatory trainings for participants, and oversee the raising of the chickens for the duration of the program.

47 Chickens Currently Laying Eggs

The chickens began laying eggs within weeks of distribution with 47 chickens already having laid an average of 10 eggs per hen.
