Update on the Pigs

The GlobalGiving Sow
The GlobalGiving Sow

Last year, we were able to buy a pregnant sow to help Kandara Children's Home on the path to sustainability. The sow gave birth in November and the piglets have grown well. Plans are now underway to sell some of the piglets to raise income for the project.

News of the pig farming has spread to the local community. One man had a pig which he couldn't afford to feed so he decided to donate it to the home. Although it was quite malnourished, it is now becoming much healthier under the care of the groundsman and children at the home. With two sows now in place, it is hoped that the project can grow and produce regular income for the home.

All of this was possible thanks to a donation on GlobalGiving! 

Thank you for your support.
