Our Hens are Hatching MORE Hope

Children receiving their eggs

We are halfway through 2022 and our nutrition project has now been running successfully for 18 months. In that time we have served 300 children between the ages of 6 to 24 months.

Hens Hatching Hope started as a simple idea of providing one egg a day per child to support nutrition. And eggs seemed like a great place to start because they are a staple food of Honduran cuisine. Our team worked hand-in-hand with local health promoters who did monthly height and weight checks. Once a mother brought in her child, they received another ticket for 30 more free eggs. Health promoters have seen HIGH compliance as the mothers come in excited to receive next month's supply. Making both the mothers and the health promoters happy. 

Additionally, we have supported 27 women starting their own small businesses to produce and provide eggs for our project - building the producers into the community. All of our "farms" are doing well and have even been able to sell extra eggs for profit.

As a result of this combination, we are excited to EXPAND our project moving forward to include children up to 36 months for our second year. Meaning, our hens are hatching more hope in Intibuca. With this expansion we will now be benefiting 500 children plus our 27 farms have all decided to continue partnering with us!

We are hoping year 2 will be just as successful in supporting the nutrition of these children and their futures. Thank you for entrusting us to make this project possible.
