The “One Egg a Day – Food Security in Africa” Project


The thing with the egg … and the fight against malnutrition

In addition to very valuable protein, the egg also contains unsaturated fatty acids and minerals such as sodium, kalium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus, selenium, and sulfur. The egg also contains vitamins A, D, E, K, B2 and B6, nicotinamide, pantothenic acid, and folic acid. One egg covers approximately 35% of a person’s daily vitamin B12 needs and in a cooked egg, Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, provides for healthy hair, skin, nerve cells, and metabolism.

Pilot Project for Training for Small Scale Farmers – Burkina Faso/Mali

 Capacity Building and Income Generators for Small Scale Farmers

Finkolo (Mali) and Koloko (Burkina Faso) communities

Population data statics show that both countries are among the world’s poorest with Burkina Faso and Mali having a 2015 yearly per capita income of 650USD and 781USD, respectively. The percentage of the population living under the poverty line in 2016 is 43,76% for Burkina Faso and 41.8% for Mali.
The economic growth and the creation of prosperity have not created real improvement in the living conditions of the people in parts of these countries.
A significant number of younger citizens have very little opportunity to access vocational training or to obtain employment.

This is exactly where we would like to help and in light of all these difficulties the YOU Foundation has started a pilot farm as a project model:

– a model farm to support small scale farmers,

– a support system for small scale farmers to create a professional non-for-profit organization to represent their shared interests,

– a sustainable finance mechanism for small scale poultry farmers as well as a centralized sales system.

Health and Happiness Begin Where Hunger Ends

One cooked egg a day can be lifesaving and contributes to improved nutrition and provides children and pregnant women with a significant portion of the needed minerals, carbohydrates, and proteins. With this project, we enable the poorest of families to purchase and care for egg laying hens. Poultry farming offers parents the opportunity to secure a livelihood for their families.
With your donation, you help reduce hunger and offer people the chance at a self-sufficient future. Hunger is the biggest disgrace of our times.
