Loaves and Fishes

One of the most exciting recent developments at Every Orphan's Hope is the successful implementation of microeconomic development in Village of Hope Chongwe. We have raised and sold the first batch of 3500 chickens and our second one will ship in 3 weeks! We are also about commission chicken run #2 of 4 next month. These chicken runs are so exciting because the four completed runs will net the camp $204k per year in profit and possibly more as we also begin to sell the fertilizer (byproduct). This pays a lot of bills for the village an keeps the monthly sponsorships reasonable. It also provides good paying jobs!

This concept is Turing out to be so successful that the board has decided to include 4 chicken runs in the designs for each new village (of 10 houses) that we build. Pictured is our poultry general manager "Lucky" weighing our birds.
