Success! Egg-Laying Hens Arrive in HaitiThe Hunger Site
Two coops have been built, and two more are in the works. For now, students at the LekĂ˛l KominotĂ¨ MatĂ¨nwa school will be caring for the chickens. Each week, a group of children will be in charge of caring for their communityâ€™s coop, including feeding the animals and cleaning the coops.
In July, families will come to the school to build individually-sized coops and receive a chicken of their own.
This is just the latest effort in GreaterGoodâ€™s Girls Access to Opportunity Worldwide (G.R.O.W.). We will continue to work with the people of Matenwa to nurture their community and help them work towards a self-sustaining state where all children have access to a full-term, secondary education and the tools they need to succeed.
