Baby chicks

Price: $18.00

A ball of fluff, combined with powerful income-generating ability: this gift is irresistibly sweet and undeniably life-changing. Once the chicks mature, they can help feed a family with their nutritious eggs, provide an income for women, and teach girls important poultry management skills to crack open a brighter, better and bigger future. Proof that great things really can come in small (and fluffy) packages!

Some of the poorest families in El Salvador received 25,000 baby chicks, training in poultry management and support to build pens, vaccinate chicks and start a thriving business. And, in the first six months alone, 200,000 eggs were collected, cracking bright futures wide open!

"It is a gift to have this farm producing eggs every day to eat," says Miss Elva, who struggled to make ends meet for her two young granddaughters in the past. Now she has surplus enough to sell eggs and earn additional income for her family. "The families in the community come to see us and buy from us -- so many have benefited."
