A pig helped Mary survive as an orphan
At just 16 years old, Mary had no way of providing for herself after her parents died, at least not without dropping out of school and resigning herself to a lifetime of manual labor and endless poverty.
Then, her life was changed through the gift of a pig. Her pig now produces dozens of piglets each year, which can bring in about $1,300 annually when Mary sells them at market! That’s money she can use to buy food, clothing, and medicine or even invest in her education or a business.
Why Should I Give a Pig?
- Pig farming requires little cost and maintenance, making it remarkably profitable.
- Pigs provide an excellent source of protein to prevent malnutrition.
- Pigs produce rich fertilizer, which can be used to grow healthy crops.
- Nearly every part of a pig can be consumed or sold, making it one of the most valuable types of livestock.
For just $200, you can give a pig to someone in need:
