Food, Education and Hygiene Support for Girls

A microproject by Water, Agroforestry, Nutrition and Development Foundation

Summary

By providing upgraded piglets, this project will provide for food for very poor girls and their families in a short term. Upgraded piglets as compared to pure breed are hardy, fast-growing and can be marketed in 3 months time. They can be fed also with kitchen left-overs and surplus production from the farm. They indeed provide tremendous benefit to the beneficiaries. We aim to provide 200 piglets to 200 beneficiaries.

Challenge

Hunger and lack of income brings very poor families on a downward spiral of powerlessness and lack of opportunities for advancement. Providing them with useful asset such as a piglet that they can easily take care will tremendously increase their position in their community. When the mature pigs are sold, they repay the price of the piglet and then we buy another in order to raise more and engage more beneficiaries.

Solution

Providing piglets to very poor families will alleviate hunger and lack of income.

Long-Term Impact

The project is aimed to improve the life chances of poor girls and their families by providing them with beneficial asset such as a piglet.
