Business Box for Families in Kenya
Learn More About this Charity
The Business Box for Families in Kenya is through 100 Humanitarians International, 501(c)(3), a non-profit organization. This program consists of gardens, chickens, goats, and cows, given to families along with mentoring and education on how to use the resources to generate the most income possible for their families.
100 Humanitarians International begins with teaching stewardship through gardening. The goal is to grow the garden for food, and sell the excess to help the family with additional supplies. They typically work with families who fall below the poverty line of living on less than $1.90/day. Through their training, they hope to bring them out of extreme poverty, and create sustainability.
When a family shows good stewardship in growing the gardens, they provide them with a rooster and 5 chickens to start a small chicken breeding program. As an example, one family grew their chickens to 40, and are now selling up to 35 eggs each day at 10 cents per egg. When a family can sell 35 eggs each day, they are now out of extreme poverty and above the poverty line, and can continue to expand with goats and cows for milk.
