Taylor’s Photo Diary

Visiting Africa with OneEgg

My name is Taylor Huske. I was able to join my mom this summer with OneEgg on a trip to Africa. It worked out great because I was on a break from grad school.

It really put things into perspective ... seeing the kids crack open their eggs, acting like they had just won the lottery. It made me think hard about the things I take for granted. 

It's such a simple idea... help locals create sustainable businesses that provide eggs to their communities and eggs for children who are malnourished.

Seeing it in action was truly incredible. Hard to believe that just a few pennies a day provide that simple egg.

It's difficult to find words to describe all that I saw in these countries.  But I did take lots of photos and videos to try and capture special moments with these kids ... kids who need food, clean water, shoes, and clothes. Kids who smile and laugh and appreciate the tiniest act of kindness.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Beautiful pictures showing the heartwarming smiles of a child. Thank you for sharing these amazing moments, with the one egg stories.
  2. Hi Taylor. So glad you and your mom could work out this epic life changing trip. (She and your dad are two of our best friends here in Dalton.). Love the way your pictures captured the hearts and exuberance of those precious children. Would love to know how this trip made a mark in your life. Many times it's difficult to put emotion to words. All I can say is that I smiled thru your whole presentation of stills and videos. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Thank you for making the time to bless the children of Africa with your beard, as well as with your kindness, love and attention--making them feel like the very important children they are in God's eyes! The pictures are awesome and heart-rending. Isn't it amazing that often those with the least, who expect the least, are among the most loving, joyous and grateful on the planet? You captured that and I thank you for it. Praying you into your next adventurous mission!
  4. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.
