How does this gift help?

Your gift is a pig that helps build sustainable farms! This is no ordinary pig. This is a pig that can help someone living in poverty to earn a better living. Farmers can use the pig’s manure, and piglets can be sold to pay for essentials like food and schooling. Your gift is supporting women farmers in Vanuatu to build thriving farming businesses rearing animals and growing crops.

As part of your gift farmers will also learn business skills and get ongoing support so that each farm is successful. Farmers are trained to ensure their animals receive the best possible care.

31-year old mother-of-two, Sila, here pictured at her farm in Pinalum Village, Malekula Island, Vanuatu, is the main farmer in her household. After seeing the success that others in her village had had selling pigs, she decided to start her own pig farm.
