In June, we were very happy to let you know that MADRE and Muixil’s chicken farming project was expanding to three new communities, reaching 50 new women participants! And thanks to your continued support, we have even more great news to share!

The 50 Indigenous Ixil women have each received three chickens to establish their own small chicken farms. These women have been able to sell the eggs their chickens produced in local markets, providing a source of income and security for their families. Ana Ceto, director of MADRE’s sister organization Muixil, recently sent us photos from the chicken farming project. We’d like to share them with you now. And we hope to bring you even more exciting updates from this growing project, thanks to your support!
