Heart for Africa

Help us feed a hungry world with nutritious eggs

The Egg Project began nearly a decade ago in Eswatini, Africa where 1 in 3 persons suffers from hunger, including many children.  

Heart for Africa brought hope to the region by providing shelter, care and education. The result is a large-scale farm and community that provides care and education to orphaned children, training and employment to the families in the region and a sustainable source of nutritious food.

Canadian egg farmers worked alongside Heart for Africa to transform a barren patch of land into two egg barns. The eggs provide essential nutrition for the 370+ Swazi kids who call Heart for Africa home, and supplement 100,000 meals for the wider community every month. Donations are needed every year to replenish the flocks and supplies.  

Strengthening an entire community

Heart for Africa is based in Eswatini, where the majority of people are affected by malnutrition and HIV/AIDS. In fact, as much as half of the population is orphaned or vulnerable children. Heart for Africa focuses on bringing hope to the region by addressing hunger, orphans, poverty and education.

The farm provides a sustainable source of nutritious food to the children, staff and local community. Canadian egg farmers are contributing on-the-ground expertise. They worked closely with the community to establish the egg farm from the ground up, and continue to work with Swazi farmers to train staff and help sustain the operation.

The egg barns offer fresh eggs to thousands of people in the community and provide a locally produced protein that is essential for human growth and development.

Join us in giving fresh, nutritious eggs to hungry kids in need

The egg barns feed 4,500 children on a weekly basis—but we need your help to replenish the flocks and keep the eggs coming!
