Pink, perky and perfect for a poverty free future

On December 24, 70 families (mostly single mother households) started to receive support to either start or expand their own pig business – a program that will progressively make poverty history for them and their children. This firmly placed “hope” on the horizon.


Liang Sho was one of the 70 recipients. She is a mother of 2 children and has been a single parent for most of her life. Her son never made it to school as he needed to work to help the family. Her daughter had to drop from school when she was 11 years old to help around home and do some farming (she is now 19 years old). What this pig program aims to do is create a sustainable income stream that makes all the difference. Liang Sho is even hopeful that her daughter may be able to return to school in the near future in order to have a better life and help the family. Check out her short video below.

Our thanks again to the wonderful support of so many to make solutions like this possible. If you’re interested in completely rewriting the future prospects of families struggling to make ends meet, please check out our Pigs for Poverty program. US$280 is all it takes to completely transform lives.
