Multiplying livestock for better lives in S Asia
The lives of people in need often can be greatly improved simply by helping them start a livestock herd. One way BGR helps families in South Asia support themselves is by teaching them pig husbandry. In one area, 20 men were trained and given a pregnant sow. Two boars were provided for the group. Each man is responsible to care for his pregnant sow and raise the baby pigs until they are old enough to be sold in the local market. After the first litter, each man is expected to breed back their sows for a second litter. This group of 20 will then provide sows to a second group of men who also need a way to provide for their families. Thank God for those who will find new lives through this project.
