Procedures Pigs For Peace

We met with village leaders and residents to inform them of our project and answer their questions about our program and the research to assess program impact. Village members learned that our team would provide ongoing hands-on support including training members of Pigs for Peace to build pigpens and compost, provide animal care, feed their animals, and how compost can reinforce farming. Interested adult men and women were randomly assigned to receive their animal loan in the first or second round of animal distribution.


Procedures Rabbits For Resilience

We met with village leaders and residents to inform them of our project and answer their questions about our program Rabbits for Resilience and the research to assess program impact. Village members learned that our team would provide ongoing hands-on support including training members of Rabbits for Resilience to build rabbit cages, provide animal care, feed their animals, and how to use animal waste to reinforce farming. Interested male and female youth (10-15 years old) were enrolled in the project.


Impact PFP and RFR/ Photo Voice Project

PFP / RFR aims to improve the health, economic stability and family and community relationships of rural youth and adults. We provide animal loans (pigs to adults and rabbits to youth) and training and hands-on support to participants. Members learn to care for their animals, and when they breed, the members of the projects reimburse the program two female rabbits or piglets. These reimbursement animals are used as new loans for youth and adults in the village. The original animal loan and remaining rabbits/piglets are for the household. Participants in our projects have reported using piglets and rabbits to pay school fees, health care, buy food and clothing, and improve their house.
