Shinyanga Pig Keeping Project (SHIPIP) was first funded by TDT 2 years ago.  It is supported locally by Lifeline, who help women headed households with income generating projects to give them a livelihood.  Lifeline have given the women training in pig keeping and management through SIDO (Small Industries Development Organisation).  This initial project has been such a success, a second application was approved in March 2020, for £2200 so 20 more women in a different area, could set up and establish their own pig income generating project. TDT supplied materials for each woman to build new pig houses, and supply each with 2 piglets.  The training was paid from community contributions.
