"Eggs for education"

Nutritional egg supplement program in our schools in India:

egg program

Many children in rural India don't have a diet that contains enough protein. Therefore we started a program in which we try to supplement that lunches that the children bring from home with an egg. Giving a boiled egg to 420 children costs only $40. To learn more or to help, go to

Update: training of farmers in modern crop production technologies:

For the past few years we have started to prepare for a new program with our partner organization READ: the introduction of modern crop production techniques, that give these advantages:

  • Increased crop productivivity per acre of 200 to 500%
  • Reduced food prices, making quality food more affordable by poor people and thereby reducing malnutition
  • Improved quality of agricultural produce including nutritional value and shelf life, which benefits people and animals.
  • Reduced poverty among farming families
  • The increased economic capacity of the farmers will over time also lift up other sectors of the local economy.
  • Eco-friendly farming methods will lead to better protection of the environment.
  • Improved sustainability.
