This project was made possible by generous grants to Songea's Kids from Sowing Seeds of Hope.Read "Jirani Mwema's Successful Chicken Project to Promote Quality Health and Well-Being for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Mshangano, March 2014" to see photos and the latest progress report on the Chicken Project.
