Project Justification: Why do you need the project?

In our community there are many families that have very low-income and are in need of improvement in their family’s economic situation.

General Objective: What do you hope to achieve with the project?

That these 15 families can have an improved diet.

Supervisor’s Note: With these projects, each family will be trained in the care of laying hens. Ten hens with one rooster will be kept in a small coop at each family’s home. When properly cared for, these hens will lay 70 eggs/week, allowing each family to improve their nutrition, reduce expenses, and provide a small amount of income from the sale of eggs.
