Above: IDP Women break into songs of thanksgiving to God
I checked in on the poultry co-op business that IAFR helped grow to 1000 chickens last year. A handful of the 25 women that run the business were there to greet me and burst into spontaneous songs of thanksgiving to God for his provision through IAFR.

One of the women told me that they are now able to send their children to school and buy the supplies and clothing that they need.
The women are part of a group of over 2000 IDP that fled to Kakuma for safety during post election violence in Kenya in 2007/2008. They are among the most vulnerable people in the country.
By investing in this business initiative, we are helping them survive and recover from forced displacement.
