Supporting SUSTAINABLE EGG PRODUCTION
The IEF aims to support nutritionally vulnerable communities to establish self-sufficient egg production, providing long-term stability. By encouraging entrepreneurship, our projects aim to enable those in need to improve the lives of their families today and in the future.
In 2017, the IEF partnered with the Trustlines Development Network Inc. as a sponsor of their Chicken and Egg Project. Since then, the partnership has supported around 250 families in some of the most rural communities in Uganda, by providing them with the skills and resources to take care of their own chickens.
The project has had an unparalleled impact on the lives of the children and families involved. A great example of this is a 9-year old boy who made enough money from selling eggs and chickens to pay for his school fees in a better school. His mother now plans to do the same for his younger brother.
