One of our sponsored projects is named “Kuku yangu, tenga yayi!” which translates to “My chicken, give me eggs!”.   You can see a brief video here.  The microfinance project provided twenty families with two chickens each (a rooster and a hen) and the obligation to return two chickens to the community to then be shared with another family.

The villagers in Kalondo have been frightened by roving rebels and FARDC soldiers who have no hesitation to help themselves to chickens and other villager possessions.  As a result, there recently was a large evacuation of chicken to another village considered to be safer.

No word on evacuating the children.
