The IEF is proud to be working alongside the charity Heart for Africa, “educating a generation to re-build a nation”. The IEF is supporting Project Canaan, a sustainable farm and “whole of childhood” orphanage in eSwatini.
The IEF and its lead partner, Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC), built an egg farm from the ground up to provide a high-quality source of protein for the children in the orphanage and their carers.
Our involvement includes support in providing the initial equipment and technology, ensuring a sustainable business model is maintained and then providing on-going training and education for Swazis regarding the production of eggs from the farm. This on-going support will ensure the sustainable and a continual supply of eggs.
Egg distribution to rural communities in eSwatini
The IEF egg distribution project in eSwatini enables children in rural communities to have unique access to high quality protein. Eggs from Project Canaan are distributed to a network of over 30 feeding stations in some of the most remote and rural areas to children who otherwise have no access to high quality protein.
