In many of the places where Plant With Purpose works, families rely solely on their farms for food and income. These chickens will supply a continual source of eggs to eat for protein and to sell in the market—a literal nest egg for a family. Chickens also provide pest control and fertilizer for vegetable gardens. Families will learn how to care for their chickens so they’ll stay healthy and continue to produce nutritious eggs for years to come. With the income these chickens provide, families can afford to send their children to school or cover the cost of essential health care.
