    Our self sustainability programme is on its way !!!


     We welcome  our chickens all 68 of them, the children are excited but going to be very busy looking after them -  a wonderful project to have at Footprints 👣 thank you to everyone who contributed to make this happen.

  • Our Fist Chilckens Sold.

    Our chicken project is now well under way.


    Just before Christmas we sold our fist chickens to a local restaurant. The funds raised by selling  some of the animals will go towards the food to rear them.


    Each month Footprints will also eat approximately 16 chickens ensuring the children have  this meat once a fortnight - this will save a lot of money from purchasing the meat down in Ukunda.


    As you can see everyone gets involved and again it is another life skill for our children to learn.

  • The Incubator Arrives - January 2018

    The first chicks were purchased but now that our own hens are old enough to lay eggs we can produce our own chicks - saving a substantial amount of money.


    The funds to purchase the incubator were donated by Tony Menzies, who spent much of his working life owning and running a chicken farm.


    We'd like to take this opportunity to thank him for his support.


    Patrick and his team are looking forward to the first Footprints chicks hatching after 21 days.


    What a fantastic experience for the children to watch them hatching and see them grow.
