Pig Farming for Extra Family Income–Thailand

Location: Ban Nong Luang village, Mae Ramard District, Tak province, Thailand
Beneficiaries: 154 children and their families
Background:

The average annual household income in Ban Nong Luang is around $1,000. By raising local black pigs, villagers can earn more money to support themselves through the sale of the livestock or the meat. This project will also provide food security during the Covid-19 pandemic for these families by cutting down on the expense of buying food and ensuring they have enough protein to eat. This pilot program will select families to participate where they will not only receive pigs to raise but will learn the occupational knowledge necessary to sustain this extra income. The project is an activity that will help children and families to become self-reliant, provide food security, and raise their standard of living.

This project has been fully funded by generous donors like you!

Project Goal

Provide local black pigs to children and their families as well as teach them how to raise them as livestock to sell and food to eat. Having these pigs will give the families better food security amid the Covid-19 pandemic and extra income to raise their standard of living.
