Project Launch:

The rural community of Gahengeri struggles to respond to food insecurity and lack of economic opportunity. Community health workers have concluded confronting the area's health challenges will require a nuanced approach designed to take into account the village's particular social characteristics. This project proposes the construction of a piggery to house pigs which will be acquired by a partner organization working on this project. Community health workers will distribute pigs to identified households with children suffering from malnutrition. The money and meat provided by the pigs will allow these households to obtain more food security and will reduce the incidence of malnutrition in the village.
