Millennium Fellowship Project: Raising Pigs
Focusing on self-sufficiency and reducing poverty, raise pigs is an initiative that targets girls between 10-18 years old who have dropped out from school and need to secure income to remain self-sufficient. We hope to fundraise and provide girls with the option to raise pigs and secure income needed for their studies.
