No more Chickens | Nourish International

July 24, 2007 | Posted in 2007, Duke, OSU, Tanzania, UNC | By

So it has been a lot longer to get back on here than i thought, but we have been hard at work and eager for shower and bed after long days of building huts. We have finished all 5 of our coups and they turned out extremely well. Yesterday and today we have been purchasing all of our poultry and the associated materials such as food and vaccinations etc. today david and i are fortunate enough to deliver all the chickens to the families who recieved coups and to the other families who we are giving a few chickens to as a gift. Rachel, Noreen, and Boni will be travelling to Pangani for the day to meet with the chairman of the fishing village to sort out exactly how we can help them.

Best news of all is that tomorrow we will be living all these chickens for good to go to Lushoto to the Lutheran Church where we will be working with the fish ponds and the orphanage there. Don’t get me wrong i love chicken but after david was defecated on and a week here i think we are all ready to move on. Tanga will be missed though. Take care and keep it real.

    Jambo indeed!

    Great reading your posts, Tik. It’s really helpful to all of us back home.

    What has the work been like? Mostly building coups? Have you been with Heifer folks, community members or a bit of both?

    I’m excited to hear all about the fish pond project.

    Quick question. Could you or one of the other team members provide a 1-3 sentence description of the project? We would like to include it in our new brochure.

    Also, do you mind if we use one of your posts in our upcoming newsletter? If you’d like me to include a specific post, let me know.

    Hey Joel, feel free to use whatever you would like from the posts. The one I am about to write may be the best one to use as it will answer many of your questions. The Heifer people are indirectly working with us because we are working with a Lutheran church here in Lushoto and that who is we are working with. The fish pond project is a really great idea and we will be contributing to rehabilitating as well as sponsoring several ponds.
