One aspect of our Gifts of Hope program is connected to our Smart Start program. Our Compassionate Entrepreneurs earn the privilege, through their sales, of donating a dozen baby chicks in their first month of becoming a CE to a family in areas like Cambodia, Bolivia, and Uganda! When their goal is achieved, Trades of Hope donates a dozen chicks to a family in need through one of our partners. However, that isn’t all the family receives. Prior to receiving their small brood of chicks, they complete several weeks of training. The family is taught how to build a coop, mix feed, keep their chickens healthy, and is provided a rooster for reproduction. This program is designed to provide families with household food security and income generating activities!
An average brood of chicks, once full grown, can provide up to 8,000 eggs every year. Many times, these eggs are sold for income, but often they are hatched and given to other members in the community. The families become model farmers teaching others the skill sets they have learned, and the cycle of change continues!
This year alone, through the efforts of our Compassionate Entrepreneurs and our faithful customers, Trades of Hope has been able to donate over 18,000 chicks! From the bottom of our hearts, we thank YOU for helping us change the world!
