Several of our partners are now running projects based around distributing livestock – particularly pigs – as a means of ongoing income. Training is given in the animal husbandry necessary to rear and breed animals, and then female piglets are given away.
The result is a sustainable and – literally – reproducible source of income. The joy on the faces of the recipients says it all. These animals will make a huge difference to their lives and the lives of their dependents.
Some partners use the same principle but with goats so that Muslims in the community can benefit.
