Chickens and eggs serve as a major protein source as well as a major income source in Monrovia, capital of Liberia. As part of Save A Life Liberia Families’ Self-Sustaining Plan, families are assisted in starting their poultry farms where they raise chickens for sale and use. Parents are able to use some of the earned income to send their children to school. Initially the family is given chicken coop building materials, chickens which are at the stage of laying eggs and feed. Families start earning income within two months of starting their poultry farm.
