Celebrated philanthropist Bill Gates’ most recent campaign is, well, out of the norm.
Gates will donate 100 000 chickens to very poor countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
He says his donations will boost incomes because chickens are inexpensive to care for.
According to Gates, a farmer starting with five hens (if they breed to 40 chicks) could earn $1000 a year.
He acknowledged that some might scoff at his plan, but insisted that he believes it will have an impact.
“It sounds funny,” Gates wrote on the project’s website. “But I mean it when I say that I am excited about chickens.”
