The Hope School Chicken Farm
"Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the
Lord, and he will repay him for his deed."
One of the most vital sources of income for the school is the chicken farm. Chickens are kept in facilities on the school grounds, and the eggs are used to feed the students and sold to the local community. At one point, the school chicken farm accounted for 20% of the total school income. The school has four large chicken houses with a capacity of 7,500 egg-laying hens. This project provides a dependable and regular income that covers much of the school expenses.
Recovering from a financial crisis which left the farm without any chickens, the school has restarted the farm and currently has 1,700 hens. We are again selling to many stores and families in Beit Jala. Of course, we would like to increase the number of chickens and eggs, so donations in the form of purchasing chickens are greatly appreciated!
