Currently, 250 schoolchildren in Masatepe receive an egg each day at school.
Our goal is 1,000. Join us as we work to provide more eggs to more kids.
In the month of March, we set out to raise funding to provide one egg per school day to 1,000 children for a year. We hit our first target, but as we look towards the future, we know that sustainability requires ongoing support.

With over 40,000 people living in Masatepe, Nicaragua, food insecurity is a daily reality, children being the most vulnerable.
There are over 1,000 preschool kids who are at high risk of not getting sufficient protein in their daily diet for their development.
It's simple. We provide eggs to 3 to 5 year olds who lack needed protein in their diets.
In partnership with OneEgg.org and local schools we can reach these kids. Your support will enable our established chicken farm to support all the preschool kids of Masatepe.
A child who is chronically hungry does not thrive physically or intellectually and may suffer from serious long-term health issues. Our eggs deliver animal protein necessary for cognitive development in a young brain.
Food insecurity and hunger can impact a child’s concentration, sleeping patterns, and ability to learn. Children who receive our eggs have marked impact on their class attendance and participation.
Parents are motivated to put their kids in class because of the meal they receive. Missing class means missing a meal. For our faith based schools, this equates to a higher level of spiritual development.
Further than you think.
Cost of One Egg: 12¢
Annual Cost to Support One Community: $24,000
Monthly Supporters Needed to Feed All Preschoolers = 100
The kids are fed rice and beans everyday through a government sponsored program at school. We supplement this meal with our eggs.
The cost of getting an egg to a child is about 12¢, including all program costs. Your support will go directly to covering this.
We have a team of dedicated workers on our farm who follow the egg from the time it is laid to the time it reaches the hands of Masatepe’s preschoolers. They care for the chicken, egg and child and are the ones hand delivering truck loads of eggs to the preschools around Masatepe.
OneEgg.org is an organization that empowers communities worldwide to provide preschool children with the necessary protein for development.
At One Collective Nicaragua, we serve alongside local leaders to seek holistic community transformation. We believe that with Jesus and with each other, we can change the future.
In the developing world, eggs are the most efficient method to consistently deliver animal protein. This early intervention is laying the foundation to support the physical and mental development of the child.
