project canaan, eSwatini
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.
