Rwanda Day 8
We started out visiting a "Pigery". One of the things Plan is doing here is a small animal project. There is a government "One Cow - One Family" plan but for families without sufficient land, a cow would be more of a hardship than a benefit. Plan provides support to these people by providing Pigs or Goats. In some cases, these are provided direct to families. In this case, the community decided that a collective approach would be better. They have a cement-floored barn housing 11 pigs, 10 sows and 1 boar. All of the sows are currently pregnant, and they expect to sell the piglets.
