Chicken Change


Justine Syakula, 8, and his mother, Grace, hold a hen and chicks that set them on a prosperous path.

Grace says her son has benefited a lot from the gift of chickens that he received from World Vision in 2011. 

“Through the chickens we have been able to be food secure because whenever food runs out we are able to sell some chickens to buy food. He has been able to support his education through chickens – he’s been managing to pay school fees, buy uniforms and books for himself,” says Grace Pendani, 40.

The chickens have also been the family’s health insurance. “Chickens have enabled us to access health services whenever someone fell sick. Without the chickens it would have been a challenge or even impossible because Maamba Hospital is far away.“

Chickens have also clothed the family, given them food, enabled them to buy groceries, and fertilizer for their maize field. They produced enough maize, to see some and buy a goat. Grace believes the chicken have opened doors to the family’s future.
