“In the morning I first go into the chicken coop to collect the eggs. This is my task and I am proud of it” says Egidius (9) from Ruhengele / Tanzania. Four years ago his family received some chickens and a goat from Kolping. Today the family has a big chicken breeding and sells hundred eggs a day. His mother Cosmas reports that her goat has meanwhile goth three kids and that she gave the first kid to another Kolping member. She sold the second to pay the school fees for her five children and keeps the third kid as a “nest egg” for hard times.
Thanks to the small livestock, the family could gain a foothold as a livestock breeder and now has its own income.
