“Eggs for Empowerment” Phase 2

Phase 2 of the “Eggs for Empowerment” program has begun, this phase will elevate the existing coop into a program that will feed, educate and empower the 800 students the MRI supports in Kenya. We have added another chicken house at Pwani, this new structure will give us the ability to raise 2 flocks (300 birds in each flock) simultaneously.

This move ensures we will have birds for sale every month for our growing customer base; it also creates the income needed to be self-sustaining and allows us to donate all the eggs laid to our various partners schools.

Phase two Components:

  1. Van Purchase
  2. Incubator
  3. Generator
  4. 3 new chicken houses
  5. Camera Security systems
  6. Teacher/ trainer for students
  7. Solar Power
