St. June 09, 2012
A new flock of laying hens arrived at Ethiopia’s Bright Hope School to help provide better nutrition for students...The hens’ eggs help provide better nutrition for the poorest of the students and income for the school.
Children’s Hope International Foundation started a sustainable food supply at the Bright Hope School by drilling a safe water well in 2009. The chicken house construction began soon after, as well as the cultivation of several acres of the school’s property. Harvests of fresh vegetables are now providing nutritious food for students and jobs for families in the surrounding Korah community. The Addis Ababa climate and the school’s rich soil seem to be a good combination for growing a variety of healthy vegetables in the sustainable gardens.
Many of the children attending Bright Hope School have lost at least one of their parents to disease and poverty. Hospital.
Children’s Hope International provides hope for international orphans and children living in poverty through education, sustainable nutrition, safe drinking water, adoption, and medical care; impacting the lives of thousands in China, Ethiopia, Colombia, Russia, Vietnam and India. http://www.HelpAnOrphan.org
