In case you missed our cooking demonstration with Laila El-Haddad, you can watch it on our YouTube channel. Laila cooked Okra and Lentils while discussing the intersection of food and politics in Gaza.
The goal of this installment of Talks on Palestine is to raise funds for our Women Empowerment Chicken Farming program which continues to bring career opportunities to poor women-headed households in the Gaza Strip. A donation of $20 will provide several chicks, medicine to support the chicks, and feeders to one family. However, any amount will help provide families with the necessary supplies needed to successfully run their own chicken farming business!
Women in the chicken farming program receive 200 baby chicks to be farmed for sale on the open market. They are also provided the training and tools necessary to successfully raise the chickens and hatch eggs. During this process, the women learn indispensable information about running their own businesses and providing for their families.
During the next stage of the program, KinderUSA actually purchases some of the chickens and eggs back in order to provide the women with further income to care for their families. To ensure food security in the future, the women keep all the tools and equipment they were given so they can continue to grow their chicken farming businesses and become self-sufficient. Help us reach as many families as possible!
