This Little Piggy Went to Market
Did you know...
90% of African families live on less than $1 per day. Proper food, clothes, medicine and education are unavailable to children living in such poverty.
How you can help
In Liberia, we give a piglet to a farmer and it is raised for sale at the city market. With the funds from this sale that farmer can then buy several piglets and continue the process until there is enough money to buy a breeding sow and boar. Sows usually have 2 litters of 4-15 pigs per year. Pigs are very easy to raise and the meat is also an excellent source of protien for the farmer's children.
