Chicken Basket 

November 5, 2019

This Sunday immediately after worship, come to Hildebrand Hall for light lunch and to meet Abisai Nandi, the founder of Chicken Basket based in Kisumu Kenya. Several months ago, Mr. Nandi found his way to Plymouth to attend church, and shared an evolved grassroots way to uplift an entire community.

Chicken Basket is a fascinating model that transforms charity into empowerment for women and their families. The primary farmers are women who ordinarily would not have the opportunity to work. They are trained to take care of chickens from infancy to market and are provided medicine and veterinary care for their chickens. Additionally, women experiencing poverty are hired to slaughter and clean the chickens once they become of age. The women sell dishes made from the parts that are not sold to hotels and businesses, which affords them a living to provide for their children. Chicken Basket is currently in solidarity with hundreds of women, impacting the lives of thousands in rural Kenya.

Come hear more about this organization from its inspiring leader!
