Pigs can have a huge impact on the life of a child in poverty. Picture this: A family has two piglets. As the piglets grow, the family breeds them — and more piglets are produced. Eventually, those new piglets can either be bred or sold for a good price. And after a short time, the family starts making enough income to buy food, clothes, medication, school supplies and more. Their new self-sufficiency helps them break the cycle of poverty.
Now, take that life change and multiply it by 90, because that's what is happening in Togo. Thanks to generous friends like you who gave the gift of pigs, three Compassion centers in northern Togo have provided pigs to 90 families along with training in business management. They also received training on building pigpens, feeding, and disease prevention and treatment. And once caregivers began raising, breeding and selling the pigs, their income became more consistent and they were able to provide for their families. Your gift of pigs empowers parents and caregivers all around the world to be self-sufficient, which in turn will encourage and empower their children — thank you!
