Every day, the chickens in their poultry house lay about 210 eggs.
The youth, who are sponsored through CFCA’s Hope for a Family program, collect 5,000 Ugandan shillings for the eggs (about $2.14 US).
The profit from this venture helps fund Anthony’s computer science degree and Lawrence’s psychology degree. They started raising poultry so that both of them could go to university.
“If it were not for CFCA believing in us, we would not have made it this far,” Anthony said.
