Saving the world – one egg at a time
When we first connected with Johnwayne Kennedy and heard his vision to impact a generation for Christ with the simple ministry of providing eggs to children, he also introduced us to OneEgg.org.
As we have interacted with Chris Ordway, executive director at OneEgg, we came to understand that we are kindred spirits. We share a passion for mission through business enterprise, and the benefits of sustainable models for making an impact in regions of great poverty.
Animal protein is essential for cognitive and physical development, especially in young kids. Children who receive adequate amounts of protein before age 5 have higher IQs and stronger mental development (Muller and Krawinkel 2006).
In the developing world, eggs are the most efficient method to consistently deliver animal protein and OneEgg is committed to delivering “More Eggs to More Kids!” The children that receive eggs through Oneegg have seen marked improvements in physical development, higher attendance at schools and increased church participation for their whole family. This early intervention is laying the foundations to support the physical and mental development to benefit from the opportunities that lie ahead.
