Egg a Day

What if the humble egg could...

end child hunger?
make kids smarter, taller and stronger?
provide jobs for the unemployed?

That's exactly what’s happening in more than 15 pre-schools run in the  Shyira region in Northern Rwanda, where rates of chronic child malnutrition are extremely high (at least 37% according to the UN World Food Programme in 2017).

Most kids who attend one of the two-hundred Anglican pre-schools in the area would rarely, if ever, eat any animal products (that’s right... No meat, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, cheese or yoghurt AT ALL!) As a result, they miss out on a whole heap of essential proteins, vitamins and amino acids that every kid needs for their body and brain to grow and develop.

The Anglican Diocese of Shyira decided to fix this problem by supplying every child with one boiled egg per day. The idea started in five pre-schools, has now spread to fifteen and will hopefully extend to all two hundred very soon!
