ZIM CHICKEN PROJECT : the details



We are Beautiful Feet Global Outreach, Inc.; a 501(c)3 Non-Profit. A faith-based organization committed to global orphan care. Our orphanage partnership located in Zimbabwe (Africa) involves 50+ children from age 3 - 19. International adoptions are not permitted for this country, therefore they will spend their entire childhood in an orphanage.

**To donate to the chicken project, follow this link and then choose "Zim Chicken Project".


THE ZIM CHICKEN PROJECT DETAILS

Goal:  To increase the monthly cashflow for our Zimbabwe orphanage partner in an effort to help them better help themselves!

Currently our Zim orphanage is able to harvest approx 100 chickens every 6-7 weeks. This has been a successful project going into its 3rd year. They have the knowledge and the space to operate a 1,000 chicken project, but they lack the water capacity, equipment and start-up capital. 

To establish this expanded project by April 2014 AUGUST 2014:
BFGO seeks 120 people to invest $28.00 per month for 6 months (beginning in October or November).
This will accomplish raising the necessary capital of approximately $20,000.
The benefit to the orphanage is 2-fold.
   (1) more protein for the children
   (2) approx $1,000 - $3,000 monthly profit from the sale of marketable chickens. 

To JOIN NOW in this poultry gift endeavor please click on this link and complete the online donation process.  Make sure that you select MONTHLY verses a one-time gift. Please set a reminder for yourself at the end of April August 2014 if you'd like for your donations to cease, or if you'd like to change the fund and/or amount. Anything not cancelled or changed will automatically be changed for you to go to the "Greatest Need" fund.  (Thank you!)

***All donations are tax deductible.

These photos are of our kiddos in the Zim orphanage partnership as well as the "space" for the future chicken project and the man who will direct the full scope of the project in an ongoing basis. He lives in the little green house with his wife and children. See photographic footage of the current chicken project (100 chicks per every 6-7 weeks). The older children participate in every aspect of the harvesting (slaughter, defeathering, cleaning and packaging).
