Planning for a Better Life Ahead

Liu is among the recipients of piglets distributed in our Pigs for Poverty Project in October 2019. After receiving her two piglets, she attended pig raising training and got her piglets vaccinated right away.

With proper care, Liu’s piglets have now grown into sows and one of them already gave birth to 12 little piglets two months ago. She intends to sell them in the coming weeks. She is also expecting the other sow to give birth within the next two months which will create still further income for her.

“I lost my husband three years ago. When he fell ill, we got into a huge debt because of his medical needs. Our family has experienced a lot of pressure since.

I have been living with my son who is now married and has two children. I help look after his kids while raising pigs and working in the farm with my daughter-in-law. My son used to be the only one who earns for the family. Now, I’m happy to be able to help him with the family’s finances. We were so happy when we received the pigs. Even in less than a year, we are already benefiting from it. We’ll be able to pay back our debts and eventually improve our living conditions.

Thank you so much for supporting me. It’s a great feeling to be able to plan and dream for a better life for me and my family, and all these happened because of your support and love. Thank you so much again!”

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

A Thousand-Mile Trip

62 girls in our second cohort of Vocational School Scholarship Program graduates, completed their courses in July 2020. Most of these girls were only able to go to school up to grade 9, with many dropping out even earlier. The key reasons being financial difficulty, prejudice on the part of their parents not valuing education for girls, and varying family circumstances. Their dreams of a career and independence were gone. But thanks to the Vocational School Scholarship program, dreams are coming true again. Luma is one of our graduating girls and she shares her story.

Dedicated Student and Role Model Mom

Although life in the countryside is free and happy, economic development here apparently cannot keep up with the rhythm outside, and the cultural gap is tremendous. The financial pressure is increasing every year, and sometimes life gets very difficult and confusing for me. I am Datintso. I am 22, and this is my story.
