Sometimes miracles come with feathers. Chickens and their eggs are a beautiful gift of nutritious food for a hungry family. They are easy to breed–so your gift can grow and multiply to create income, share with neighbors, and ultimately make a better life for the whole village.
Your gift of chickens will also naturally multiply to impact generations of children. Each family that receives chickens can sell the offspring for extra income or share them with other families in need. Chicks require little money, space, or food to thrive and grow — making them an ideal business venture for a single mom or vulnerable family.
Chickens have been a blessing for Placeda Mesias and her children in the Philippines. “I am happy because there will be food,” says the mother of six, “like the eggs.”
Three of Placeda’s children were suffering from malnutrition before receiving the chickens. Now they are back to a healthy weight, thanks to the nutritious eggs.
In another village down the road, Nelsa Cayapas is also grateful for her donated chickens. “Thank you because it’s a big help, especially in the needs of my children, their schooling and their health,” says the mother of four. Nelsa has been able to sell chickens and eggs to her neighbors, using the income to buy rice, milk, sugar, and school supplies.
Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to the Animal & Agriculture Fund.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
