Not only a handy critter to have around a farm, raising piglets can provide a self-sustaining form of income for youths in the Solomon Islands. Raising livestock also gives them the opportunity to learn new skills and contribute positively to the community.
Education is just one of the priority areas we work in as part of Save the Children’s Global Neighbours program which this Little Helper supports. This program helps children around the world, ensuring they are safe, healthy, well-fed and educated.
What are Little Helpers?
Little Helpers cards represent activities carried out in Save the Children projects in Australia and overseas. Each donation will assist Save the Children Australia in providing children with valuable support in the areas of education, health and emergency relief.
The Little Piggies card represents Save the Children’s work around the world as part of our Global Neighbours program. The purchase of this card may not directly provide piglets to youth but will be used by Save the Children to fund health, education, and child protection programs for disadvantaged children and young people around the world including countries such as Australia, Vanuatu, Laos, Nepal and Solomon Islands.
