From Canoe to Coop

Eggpreneur is thankful for the people from all walks of life who contribute to the work of reducing poverty in Kenya.   Three years ago, three men in Guelph learned about Eggpreneur and became passionate about finding a way to contribute to our work.   These men also had a dream to build a canoe together.  So, they combined those passions and, after 2 years, and many hours of sweat, construction, and sanding, a beautiful handcrafted wooden canoe emerged.   The canoe was completed in November and it was auctioned off at a fundraising event for Eggpreneur.

The event was a wonderful time of sharing about the work of Eggpreneur among the larger community and working towards a common goal of building awareness and financial support for Eggpreneur.
