Where things stand…
Small-flock system design and development is being led and funded by Urban Coop Company (UCCO) for TNEP. Alpha testing was done in 2016. The systems have been under local Beta Testing during 2016 & 2017. The first 5 Beta Test systems were funded by Urban Coop Company and a group of generous donors placed those systems at a school / orphanage in Canaan. As of mid 2018 these pilots are 100% successful. The focus for 2019 & 2020 will be to establish a 1000 bird flock and incubation capability so as to be able to supply and launch at other schools.

The Native Egg Project is a mission of family and friends to sow the seeds of change on how food mission work is done. During the initial work in Canaan Haiti, they also formed a consolidating non-profit called K12 Canaan as a way to support other groups that wanted to do work for schools in Canaan Haiti.
