Do something eggstraordinary this springtime!

Summary

Please help us buy an egg incubator for PIZZ School and Support Centre which cares for over 400 orphaned and vulnerable children. Many come to school hungry. An incubator with a capacity of 1000 eggs will first and foremost provide an invaluable additional source of nutrition to the school lunches already provided. It will however also provide a source of income for the project through the sale of eggs and chickens as well as the loan of the incubator itself to the local community.

Challenge

Over 1 million children in Zambia are bereaved orphans of HIV/AIDS - many live in poor conditions and work on the streets. PIZZ offers these children education and hope for the future. In the poverty-stricken region of Monze, it is extremely difficult for PIZZ school and support centre to generate income. However, as well as providing financial support, we aim to help our partners overseas to become more sustainable in the long-term.

Solution

PIZZ will purchase an incubator, which automatically rotates 1000 eggs and maintains the correct humidity level. Delivery is free, it is simple to operate and training will be provided. They will also buy a generator to manage power cuts as the eggs must of course be kept warm at all times to ensure a good success rate. This will enable PIZZ to provide better nourishment for the children attending the school and to generate income to support the project.

Long-Term Impact

PIZZ currently provides education and a stable community for more than 400 disadvantaged children. We aim to support these children to reach their full potential, so that ultimately they will be able to enjoy a better quality of life through obtaining employment and self-sufficiency. The impact of income generation projects like this one is that the project itself, upon which so many rely, becomes more sustainable in the long-term and better able to achieve change for the community it serves.
