Building a stronger community, one egg at a time
Project Canaan has expanded with the addition of a new egg farm. Our journey saw a barren patch of land transformed into two layer barns filled with egg laying hens thanks to the generosity of volunteers and supporters.
Egg Farmers of Canada is contributing on-the-ground expertise and has worked closely with the community to establish the entire egg farm from the ground up. The project team, made up of a group of Canadian egg farmers and staff, continues to work with Swazi farmers to train staff and develop a long-term strategy to sustain the operation.
Now that the barn is complete, Project Canaan is providing a locally produced protein that’s essential for human growth and development. The farm:
- Produces 4,000 fresh eggs each day for the community
- Supplements 880,000 meals each year to the rural parts of Swaziland
- Employs 280 Swazis whose families were previously living below the poverty line
Take action now and help local farmers develop a successful egg operations for Swazi children and their families. Visit heartforafrica.ca (Canada) or heartforafrica.org (United States) and select “donate” then “poultry house” to pledge your support and help us feed a hungry world with eggs.
