World Vision recently launched its organic hog-raising project in an Aeta community in Rosario, Batangas. The community earns meager income from farming and selling herbal medicine. Douglas Chua, World Vision's team leader in the area, says, "The project aims to provide additional livelihood assistance to Aeta parents so they can support the daily needs of their families and continue sending their children to school."

 

 

 

Unlike the conventional way of raising hogs, organically-grown hogs do not emit foul odor. The method is able to provide savings of nearly 45% to families. World Vision provides 10 pigs for the community to raise organically.—World Vision/August 10, 2017
