Sustainability is key to our long term success.
In November 2009, we started a chicken project with 50 layer hens. We sell our eggs to one of the main hotels in Arusha, and also through several shops. Demand for our eggs has always exceeded our supply! We have gradually grown this project to the point where we now have capacity for 350 chickens!
Just as we care for our children and staff’s well being, we care for our chickens - they are healthy and happy, and prove it by laying eggs prolifically!
Watch this space as we continue to grow our business!
As of May 2015 we have closed our chicken business, as we seek opportunities for social enterprises that will bring a greater return. We are currently converting one of the chicken sheds into two bedrooms for our older teenagers and/or volunteers. We are also looking at other social enterprises that we can run out of the other sheds. Watch this space…!
