Empty ark  Printing instructions

Full Ark: $892

Build a complete Ark that includes: 5 tree saplings, 1 rabbit, 1 pig, 1 flock of chickens, 1 lamb or baby goat, 1 cow, 1 beehive.

Tree Saplings: 5/$5

Begin your ark with trees that help the environment and the families CRS serves. Planting trees on bare land can replenish the soil and improve farmers’ crop production. Fruit trees offer the added benefit of providing delicious and nutritious food.

Rabbits: 1/$27

Rabbits produce organic manure for home gardens or coffee fields, which improves crop production. Small-scale coffee farmers can receive vouchers at livestock fairs to buy a small animal.

Pigs: 1/$30

Pigs are perfect for helping farmers earn more. Rather than requiring pasture, pigs can live in small pens and eat a wide variety of foods. 

Poultry: 5 Hens, 1 Rooster/$40

Eggs and chickens are a crucial source of protein for families. Chickens are easy to raise in small yards and can generate added income. 

Lambs & Baby Goats: 1/$80

A lamb or baby goat can be a daily source of nutritious milk. They help families provide their children with well-rounded diets and increase incomes.

Cows: 1/$300

Livestock is often a family’s most valuable asset, providing added stability should crops fail or disaster strike. Fresh milk means a well-balanced diet, and extra income for household needs and school tuition.

A Hive of Honeybees1/$410

Raising bees can be very lucrative and requires little space. With a beehive and a minimal training, a family can create a successful honey business.
