We funded COWOCE to implement a Pig Passion Project in November 2021.  This allowed them to construct 25 pig huts, purchase 50 piglets and 6 boars which were shared between 4 vulnerable families.  The project is in its early stages but is going well and piglets are expected in February 2022.

The main objective of the project is to reduce poverty among women by strengthening household income through establishment of pig project.

“To empower Women, Children and the community with the right tools that help them to fight diseases, ignorance, poverty and all forms of discrimination through education, empowerment and participation”

As the picture shows, this project has so far achieved some of the goals we wanted to achieve!

This is what Helena, one of the beneficiaries of this project, told us when we asked her what it meant for her and those around her to be involved in this new initiative.
