Africa School Farm

One of the workers in the laying house at Ethiopia's Bright Hope School,
holds up a tray of newly harvested eggs.

The chickens at the Bright Hope School farm are back to full production. Over 300 laying hens are producing a daily harvest of hundreds of eggs that can be sold or used in meals for the poorest students at the school.

This new hen flock arrived in late spring. With a few weeks to mature, the hens started laying eggs in August.

The farm project on the school's 13 acres began in 2009, when a water well was drilled on the school grounds. Since then, several seasons of vegetable crops have been harvested and the laying house is now on its second flock of hens.
