Pig Farm Project Update (Cameroon)June 22, 2012
A few months ago, we started promoting the piglet farm at A Better World Children’s Home in Cameroon. As part of our sustainable projects program, we worked together with the directors of the orphanage and came up with an idea that would not only generate income for the home, but also be a fun activity for the kids.
The home was able to start the farm with a few piglets thanks to your generosity. The kids LOVE the piglets and are excited to care for them. In a couple months, breeding will commence for more piglets, which can be sold at the market for substantial revenue for the home. The directors intend to use the income generated to improve conditions within the home, for example, by increasing the amount of food children eat per day, or buying the appropriate medication to treat illness.
Thanks to donors like you we were able to kick start the project and purchase the initial set of piglets. The project is still up on our home page because it is not completely funded. Check back on the project page for updates on the project development, and to see the effect your piglet purchase has had on the orphans in Cameroon!
Who would have guessed that cute little piglets would bring so much joy and opportunity to these orphans?x y
