Helping 30 rural Malawi women through pig farming.



This project will provide start-up piglets to 30 single Malawian rural mothers who do not have any financial means to buy nutritive food and medicine for their children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Single mothers of Maliya and Mang'omba rural communities are financially helpless and hopeless to the extent that they do not have money and/or material resources that they could use to support their households by providing nutritive food, medication and proper clothing for themselves and also providing to their own children in time of need.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing pig farming, the single mothers and their children will be able to benefit financial gains and profits that will enable their households have proper food, clothing, shelter and also be able to be buying medication when ill.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will have long-term self-sustaining effects in terms of solving problems that single mothers face which are; lack of financial security, nutritive food and proper shelter since the pigs will be continously reproducing.
