Widow Kamala's Farm Animals Story


KGM Volunteer Board Members cover all operating costs so 100% of EVERY gift you invest in through Kerusomen goes directly to families in rural India. Every penny of your generous giving produces impact and changed lives.

Whether you give once or partner regularly with us through our
Fountain Community, we want you to have peace of mind about your stewardship.  

Generosity and kindness are contagious – and you’re living proof! You stepped up and gave starter flocks of five chickens to hardworking families in India. Because you did, widow Kamala grew her flock from five to 23 and gave away 10 chickens to two struggling neighbors. The video shows how that generosity kept repeating itself. Kamala also kept two roosters to continue growing her flock. Now, Pastor Simon says she’s ready to give more away more offspring to other families in her village.

That’s just ONE of the one hundred families who received flocks from you. Your loving example is birthing more backyard chicken businesses every day, as God continues to multiply your flocks (and your kindness!) to transform hearts and lives in India. 


Imagine how you would feel if you were living in abject poverty. What if your first priority - every single day - was to simply survive. You have no time or resources to improve your situation...what's the best way out?

What if I told you obtaining animals is the answer. Seem unlikely?  India's government considers it one of the best ways for poor families in rural areas to lift themselves out of poverty. 

Here's what these animals provide: 


Entire families can sustain themselves with the meat, nutrient-rich milk, or high-protein eggs that goats and chickens provide.


As the animals reproduce, families can sell the leftover milk, eggs, cheese, and butter. And when the flocks and herds flourish, the kids and chicks can be quickly sold for even more cash.


  • Family members incapacitated by disease can become productive again
  • Children can go to school
  • Better healthcare and medicine are more affordable
  • Families can consider improving their living conditions and dwellings
  • The miserable cycle of poverty ends and a new cycle of prosperity begins for future generations


Families must show they are serious about providing a sustainable food supply and/or extra income for themselves and their children. In order to show their interest, they contribute their own money to feed and build shelter for the animals. 

Women and widows, who are the head of their households, can also join training classes that teach them to manage money and achieve basic business skills. 

Each animal recipient agrees to give first-born animals to help another needy family in their village and welcome regular visits from KGM pastors to check on the family’s progress towards self-sufficiency. This ensures that your gifts to Springs of Hope will have lasting results.
