No other renewable food source is more powerful, more portable, or more proven than eggs. Eggs empower a person to reach their full potential. They’re nature’s ultimate “super-food”.
Students in Canaan Haiti face a nutrition gap that disadvantages them. The Native Egg Project (TNEP) wants to change that. We provide small flock poultry systems and teach students the skill of sustenance small-flock egg farming. A skill that gives the the dignity of self-sufficiency and access to nutrition that can change the course of their minds.
Small-Flock Egg Farms Are The Answer
You can teach students how to farm a dozen eggs per day in a small space, an hour of time and using organic waste to produce the chicken feed. Small-Flock egg farms eliminate transportation costs and environmental impact of centralized egg facilities and have inherent bio-security benefits. Eggs are THE premium renewable, sustainable food resource. It’s a life changing lifetime lesson young people can learn. It can change their future, and the future of their families.
