Mission Statement

Our Vision: A world where each young person grows up to be economically independent and actively contributing to the improvement of his or her community.

Our Mission: To empower all kids to be social entrepreneurs who make a difference for themselves and the world and have young people who participate in One Hen programs graduate from high school with employable skills, a plan to succeed in college, and a goal to contribute to the development of their communities.

Description

One Hen, Inc., empowers kids to be social entrepreneurs who make a difference for themselves and the world

Our two innovative programs, One Hen: Microfinance for Kids, and The Good Garden: Food Security for Kids use interactive media, hands-on learning and a pertinent social issue to teach students in grades 3 - 8 financial responsibility, global awareness, personal initiative, and the value of giving back to build their community.

Students learn the basics of business and money management, receive micro-loans to start simple businesses, research a social problem, and use their profits to help solve it. Our programs equip children with the basic financial literacy they need to develop sound economic skills and values.

To learn more, see One Hen in action in the ABC News Report and view interactive resources at www.onehen.org, www.thegoodgarden.org and our corporate site www.oneheninc.org
