Barnyard Project

The old adage declares: “Give a man a fish, and tomorrow he will be hungry again.  Teach a man to fish and tomorrow he can feed himself!”  Since 1998, World Changers has been “teaching men and women to fish”, by providing goats, chickens, hogs, buffalo, garden seeds, rice and farm equipment as gifts and small business or micro-enterprise loans.  Some of these projects have remained small and low-key.  However, other projects--like two chicken farms in Nepal that raise about 400,000 chickens and over 1,000 hogs each year—have not!  Tons of rice and veggies have been raised and consumed or sold by these farm cooperatives.  

The Barnyard Project exists to provide the resources necessary for poor, subsistent farmers to produce crops and livestock to feed orphanages, elderly folks, clinics, schools, and food and income for both poor, persecuted Christian families and many of the missions/charities they have developed.
