Cow, Chicken, Garden Projects
We believe… in providing a hope and a future.
One of the most creative but logical and time-proven ways to provide food and healthy diet for vulnerable children in Africa is the cow, chicken, and garden projects. The idea is to give a source of food while teaching children life-sustaining ethics rather than short-term relief.
While some orphanages and care centers are located in the city are not conducive to this type of enterprise, others are ideally situated in rural sites perfect for agricultural endeavors.
With the Cow Project, Chicken Project, and Garden Project, the children learn basic techniques and responsibilities of farming and free enterprise. After the dietary needs of the children are met, excess milk, eggs, poultry, and vegetables are sold at the marketplace, offering additional training and experience in micro-business and basic financing.
A heifer calf can be purchased for $400 to $650 and within a year can be generating a modest supply of dairy commodities.
It costs approximately $30 dollars a month for maintenance of the animal. You may make a one-time donation to purchase a dairy cow or donate monthly to cover feeding and care of the animal.
- Donate $400 to purchase a dairy cow.
- Donate $30 a month for food and other supplies for the dairy cow.
Danielle Raises Money For A Cow
Danielle was 16 year old and in her junior year at Foothill High in Tustin. When she was searching for a philanthropic opportunity when she came across our cow project. Danielle loves cereal with milk as one of her favorite snacks and came up with the idea of selling cereal with milk at school every morning for a small donation of two dollars. She raised $75 on one day then family members joined in and helped raise another $150 at their place of employment. Word-of-mouth grew and others donated. Danielle's friends at school and teachers were very supportive and excited about the project. Danielle met her goal and raised more than $400 to purchase a cow and support continues to buy food for the cow.
* "The cow is now two years old, had a calf and continues to produce 10 liters a day seven days a week," Thank you, Josephat Mmanyi

Help KidCare International plant fruit trees and a garden on our land (three acres) adjacent to our home for orphans and street children. The land is fertile but needs and an irrigation system and a block wall to protect from wild animals stomping the crops. Corn has been planted successfully on our land. Unfortunately, elephants destroyed the crop. Building a protected, walled garden would create a valuable food source for the orphans for years to come.
- Donate $240 for seeds and supplies for an acre of land for one year.
- Donate $500 toward creating an irrigation system
- Donate $1,000 toward building a block wall enclosure
