Support our work in Family Livelihoods

Help improve sustainable income generation for families.

In many of the communities where ChildFund works, agriculture is the main source of income for families.

However, it's getting more difficult to be a farmer these days.

ChildFund is helping families by offering training in new farming techniques, distribution of alternate seeds and livestock, as well as business skills and new markets opportunities.

Providing livestock for children and families

One of the best ways to boost household income is through the provision of livestock, like sheep, goats, chickens, and cows. Your donations help provide families with livestock and training on how to sustainably produce eggs and milk.

In some of the communities where ChildFund works, access to water is an issue that leaves many crops unable to thrive. Your donations allow us to build irrigation systems in our communities to keep crops growing well.

Combining farming techniques with alternative sources of income

As the climate has such a large impact on livestock, agriculture plans are in place to improve the irrigation for crops and training for improved farming techniques. Diversifying income sources is also taught through business training for selling handmade products.
