EMPOWERING WOMEN THROUGH CHICKEN FARMING
Why does this matter?
In villages like Kunchubwe, its difficult to have sustainable and reliable sources of income. Especially if you're a woman. Women are truly the hardest working individuals in Zambia. Almost exclusively, women feel the burden to provide and care for their children, their homes, and their communities. Its easy to see that by empowering women, we can empower a whole village.
