One Horizon’s farming programs truly do change lives. This is because we help struggling Kenyan grandmas start their own chicken or pig farms. The United Nations rates pig and chicken farming highly. It recognises them among the most successful small-scale enterprises for third world communities. Your gift is three sows and high-quality feeds for a grandma. Kenyan grandmas often care for their extended families. This also includes raising their orphaned grandchildren. It’s tough for the grandmas. This is because they were born into a generational cycle of poverty and disadvantage. However, your gift will break that cycle.
Your gift is three sows and high quality feed. It is the first step in the grandmas starting their own small farming business. In eight months the pigs will be breeding. Along the way, we support the grandmas with mentoring. This includes animal husbandry and small business training. Further, we help them find markets for their pigs. We walk side by side with the grandma until we’re sure her business is sustainable. We also share her delight when she opens her very first bank account. Your gift during the start up phase is an invaluable contribution to ensuring that a grandma can leave poverty behind forever. And that means her family members can see brighter futures on their horizons.
