Vugalei Village ChickenCoop Project

$1,700 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 16 people in 36 months
Hey everyone, 

My name is Basil Henning and this summer I'll be traveling to visit Kendall Axt in Fiji. Kendall is a Peace Corps Volunteer, and lives in a remote village on the northern island of Fiji, Vanua Levu. She is working as a teacher at the local high school, as well as working with the Youth Group in her village on community projects (Youth in Fiji are considered ages 15-25). 

The mission of her youth group is to work together in order to create a safer, healthier, and more economically prosperous community. With that vision in mind, the youth group has decided that their 2016 project goal is to build a chicken coop. After talking with community members, a poultry feed company, and a hardware store, the estimated cost of the project is atleast $1,000 USD (This includes all building materials, labor costs, transportation of materials, chickens, and feed).  

This will be an extremely beneficial project for the community. The village is located an hour outside the closest town, where eggs are expensive and difficult to transport on the overcrowded bumpy bus. The eggs will provide much needed protein to the community's diet, and will serve as a source of income for the Youth Group. 

Kendall and I have decided that my visit will be the perfect opportunity to help get the chicken coop project completed. I will be staying in Vugalei Village for the first two weeks of July and I would love to give back to the community while I am there. I have basic construction experience, and have worked on building a chicken coop in the past. Our goal is to have the funds raised by July 1st, so we can begin the construction process as soon as I arrive. For the next two months Kendall and the youth group will be working on project planning and local fundraising, but we also need your help! If you are interested in being  part of this awesome project and helping to bring fresh eggs to Kendall's community, any donation  would go a long way and be highly appreciated! 

Thanks so much,

Basil
