The Animal Empowerment Program

In The Animal Empowerment Program, we teach widows animal husbandry. Having this skill, a woman can start her own business, providing a living for herself and her children.
A widows group receives 2 goats and 2 sheep.  The group is required to increase the herd to 10 before they may sell any stock.  Goats must be tended but they forage off the land. 
Alternatively we provide chicks to some groups, also providing food, feeders, and all equipment to start a chicken breeding setup for the eggs or meat.  
We furnish everything necessary to bring the chickens to market. The group is responsible to continue the project with the money made. In all our programs, we teach the groups how to manage their earnings, opening a bank account, managing expenses, etc.
