Uganda Orphanage "Chicken Farm"

Donation protected
COISER Orphange in Jinja, Uganda provides shelter and education for 20 children who have no parents or parental support. Many of the parents died of AIDS, or in car accidents, or were jailed, or abandoned the children due to poverty. 

The children need money for food and school supplies - their only funding is a monthly teaching salary of $77 that the director (Jeremiah Mikenga) collects.

$3,100 is needed to set up a poultry-raising farm, to provide income to support the orphanage. Poultry-Raising is a successful business for many people in Uganda. 

If you donate $10, you get two Thank You letters!
if you donate $25, you get a chicken named after you.
If you donate $50, you get a coop named after you.
If you donate $75, you get a fence post named after you.
If you donate $100, you can stay at the orphange, in the guest room, when you visit Uganda.
