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.
The IEF believes in the ability for the latest technology to dramatically increase productivity levels within existing small to medium scale egg production businesses across multiple regions in the developing world. This includes technology of accessing the latest genetic strains appropriate to each area, support on correct feeding and appropriate housing facilities. The IEF works with a range of partners in this including Lohmann, CEVA and Big Dutchman.
