Over the past 3 years, we've experienced incredible highs and crazy lows.  But these days, Chicks Empowered is a steady, well-running machine.  Our ladies earn around $50/month, have been featured on local radio stations for their success, make their own chicken feed from maize they grow themselves, and LOVE what they do.  

There are too many success stories to share from this bunch. Three years ago when I asked each of the ladies what goals they had for the future, many shared they would like to build a "proper" home.  Earlier this year, Monica saw that dream come to life!  Because of the money she earned through Chicks Empowered, her family was able to build this beautiful house, send all their kids to school, and keep an abundance of food on the table!  

Monica's not the only one, many of our ladies have reported that they are able to make repairs on their current homes AND start buying materials to build "proper" homes.  

Martha stands in front of her partially built home with grandkids.  After putting construction aside for some years - Martha has saved enough money to start building again.

We are so SO proud of these girl bosses.  They have overcome challenges. Stuck it out when they weren't earning a penny.  Have worked together to problem solve.  And become business leaders in the Kunchubwi Village area -- and that makes my heart absolutely soar!
