Challenge

The women identified for the project are rural women who have no or little income. This is due to the fact that their agricultural produce is unable to sustain them with household incomes. They are then unable to complete the livelihoods cycle

Solution

The piggery projects is anticipated to bring incomes to households such that the participants will have food which they produce and also income to purchase other necessities like fees for school going children, access to medical care and medicines from local health providers

Long-Term Impact

Initially the project will have a reach of 50 women and their families but it is anticipated that there will be more beneficiaries as we hope to grow the project to cover 100 families within the Shashe Block of Farms. This is an area which is affected by erratic rainfall patterns and it is necessary for farmers to have livestock and not depend on rain fed agriculture alone. This will see about 500 people moving out of poverty
