Community Chicken Coops
Efforts to improve food security are making concrete and positive impacts in El Salvador. In January of 2016, the first delegation of Canadian volunteers visited the community of Atehuecia to break ground for a new chicken and egg project which houses 500 chickens, supports five families and supplies chickens and roosters (when needed) for future family coops. This was just the beginning of something great! Since then we have funded two more community chicken coops, the newest one in San Diego, El Salvador.
So far 51 families in three communities have benefited from the chicken projects, in which coops are built, initial flocks are supplied, and educational programs are provided to ensure the ongoing health and maintenance of the coops and flocks.
Sponsorship Needed: $25 per chicken
