One chicken can make a life-saving difference.

Chicks4Children is a sustainable campaign from Global Family Philanthropy to end hunger and poverty worldwide. Our Chicks4Children coop recipients commit to share the offspring and provide community outreach. The result is a plethora of eggs and chicken to raise, eat, share and sell.


Do you realize what one healthy Hen can do? Well, let’s see… she’ll lay a plethora of fresh eggs to feed our family and friends, she’ll create lots of baby chicks, she’ll help maintain our fruit and vegetable gardens by keeping insects at bay and she’ll help generate income for our sustainable programs! Need we say more?


Chicks4Children is a sustainable campaign founded by Global Family Philanthropy in 2010.  Our GFP Children's Home in Haiti was near completion when a wise friend suggested we raise chickens. 

Having very little "chick" experience, we could not believe our eyes. Wow, chickens are amazing. Within weeks, we felt compelled to share our offspring and create more sustainable programs for needy families in our neighborhood, and for that matter, around the world.

Sustainability is the answer. A chicken coop is a bank account in an impoverished country and we believe every family should have one.  Our Chicks4Children recipients receive more than just a chicken. They are educated on the importance of sustainability. They learn about farming, agriculture and the benefits to their community. We teach recipients how care for their gift and how to manage their own small, profitable business.

Our Flock is growing. We are grateful. We treasure good friends and we recognize collaboration is key. Be a good egg and join us. Together, let's put an end to hunger and poverty around the world.


Your gift will be received by a needy family that's committed to the chicks4children philosophy. All recipients must share the offspring of every chicken they receive. Chicks4Children plays an active role with the its recipients to find its next. And so on and so on. A gift that just keeps giving.

Results to be proud of. Children are nourished. Gardens flourish. Families are empowered. Communities are built. We all win. We all give. We are grateful.
