Fight malnutrition with Super Chicken
Created in 2017 by International Impact, Super Poulet is a project that raises awareness of malnutrition among young people in primary and secondary schools in France and supports underprivileged families in several regions of the world.
Sales of “fake” eggs (including bouncing balls) are made in schools and by students. For each egg sold, a chicken is bought and given to a family in a developing country, notably in Ecuador, Togo, Paraguay and India.
Approximately 795 million people in the world suffer from hunger, i.e. 1 in 9 people, mostly children.
Chickens provide animal protein, and eggs are one of the few highly nutritious foods.**
Chicken is the least water-consuming animal meat compared to beef or pork. It has the lowest environmental impact.

The hens purchased in the countries in question are redistributed and installed in small groups (3 to 4 individuals), in families and henhouses, with the help of students from the Purpan engineering school in Toulouse. The laying hens will be able to produce eggs as adults and provide a better diet for undernourished populations.
