Singing for Change Supports Small Farmers in Rural Haiti

Chicken CoopThe Singing for Change Foundation is supporting egg production for small farmers in rural Haiti as a part of ongoing poverty alleviation efforts.  Pictured here is the first of two chicken coops for rural communities one hour east of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  Haitian NGO Royal Palm and FAVACA are working to diversify small farmer income through holistic sustainable farm practices.  This site will host fifty to one hundred chickens in Dimulssau, Haiti will provide a renewable source of  protein through egg production and use a pasture rotation approach to encourage healthy birds while replacing nutrients (via chicken manure) in the depleted Haitian soil.
