This pandemic response project provides the most vulnerable local indigenous families (selected by rural community leaders) with everything they need to begin earning income from the sale of eggs and mature chickens within just six months: young chicks, chicken feed, vitamins and wire fencing to keep out dogs. .
Please take a few minutes to watch local indigenous women and children build their very own small chicken farm to help them survive this pandemic, thanks to donations from caring people like you
Chicken Project donations support the Reactivation of the Family Economy Project of the Muyumi Kanki Kichwa Cultural Center (Cotacachi) and the Mojandita Curubi Health Center (Otavalo), two Wichana partner organizations with proven track records in pandemic emergency food distribution here in the Andes of Ecuador.
Both indigenous-led organizations depend on generous support from individual donors. Please donate to them through the Chicken Project of the Wichana Foundation, a 501(C)3 charitable organization based in New York.
Please do whatever you can to help. Even a small donation of $10 can buy several baby chicks for a new farm.
Thank you! Yupaychanchik.
