Trustlines Development Network, Inc
Children's Chicken and Egg Project
The IEF is privileged to be the main sponsor of the Trustlines Development Network Chicken & Egg Project; in 2017 we enabled 23 families to benefit from 315 eggs and 46 chickens, in 2018 we reached 98 families with an increase to 980 eggs and 196 chickens. The project provides the opportunity for the children to supplement their diet with nutritious eggs, whilst developing life skills with the possibly of earning an income later. Educating a village, one egg at a time.
Through the Chicken and Egg Project within rural Uganda, each child (aged 6 to 12 years old) is given a hen, a rooster, starter feed, training and technical support. A local contact works with children to develop the skills necessary to care for hens and later manage a small business. The project provides families with a sustainable source of protein and the opportunity to expand their efforts; a single hen providing over 150–200 eggs or chicks per year, the eggs and poultry can also be sold to earn extra income.
