Goats and pigs provide an income to families living in abject poverty by providing offspring for sale at the market. One sow can produce 12-15 babies a year, and within six months a piglet can weigh 200 pounds. Similarly goats are capable of producing a pair of kids every 6-12 months.
They are practical animals, flourishing in the harsh Himalayan climate while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.
All needy families partaking in the HHCP Nepal goat and pig sponsorship programme must sign an agreement prior to being the recipient of donor goats or pigs. This agreement states that their children must attend school and they must participate in the micro-savings programme which requires the family to participate in monthly banking.
Not only will these families will have an ongoing income from the pigs and goats that will help break the cycle of poverty, but it is also teaching them skills for the future and they will no longer live day to day and hand to mouth.

The goat/pig sponsorship program is a one-off payment of $95US/$127AUD for a pair of piglets, or $160US/$215AUD for a female goat with two kids afoot.
