Immaculate Heart Sisters Chicken Project for Girls

Region: Africa

Country: Tanzania

Missioner On This Project

Fr. John Eybel, M.M.

MISSION PROJECT FULLY FUNDED FOR 2023

The Immaculate Heart Sisters (founded by Maryknoll in 1955) project involves girls aspiring to the religious life, as well as poor women, in the raising of chickens (layers and broilers). There is a need for cages, labor, chicks, vaccines, water and feeding vessels, food and transportation. With 2,000 chicks, the Sisters can produce layers and chickens for the market in four months. This project will provide income for the education of the girls, and experience for the women employed, so they will be able to manage their own poultry projects in the future.

"Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do."
- 1 Thessalonians 5:11
