Transforming Communities through Relationship

The Gift of Healthy Living: Agriculture

Agricultural animals such as pigs or hens can be an economic boon to a struggling family, providing a source of income with their offspring, meat or, in the case of hens, eggs. Hens can help rural families make ends meet when coffee harvests are poor. A large investment such as a pig also gives families unaccustomed to wealth ownership a chance to learn financial responsibility.
