A Mother’s Sustainable Efforts to Send Her Children to School
The Pigs for Poverty project aims to provide 2 pigs to 125 disadvantaged households (mostly single mothers) and their families this year. This small business opportunity will help bring financial stability to these 125 families and help make it possible for these children to get a good education. So far, 89 families have benefitted from this project through training on pig breeding and vaccination schedules. Li Deji is one of the beneficiaries and shares her story and thanks.
“I work hard every day to face the challenges of life. I always firmly believe that education can change the future, so it’s important to me to send my children to school no matter how hard or tired I am. I didn’t have the opportunity to get an education. Because of this, I haven’t had a stable source of income, but I have to stick whatever I can for the sake of my children. Fortunately, with your encouragement and help, I have hope in my life. I know I can raise pigs well and reduce some burdens for myself and my children. I also believe that as long as I work hard, I will be able to do well. I hope that this time next year, I will be able to sell some pigs. Thank you very much for helping me and other women like me. We all have the same difficulties. I believe that every recipient is extremely grateful. Thank you”
If you want to be part of ending poverty for one family and help provide a sustainable future, US$180 provides training, program management & support, and 2 quality breeding sows to get them started.
My world is not limited to a small mountain village. I want to reach a distance I have never reached. I want to go to the top of the mountain to overlook the world and blow the night wind on the top of the mountain.
