GoalThe goal of this project is to establish a pig farm in remote North East India among the Sangtam people.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $16,700 to establish the piggery project that will bring economic development and improve nutrition.
DescriptionThe Tuensang Hills are in the most remote part of Eastern Nagaland in Northeast India. The region is home to the Sangtam people and five other tribal groups. The Tuensang area receives no assistance from the government. However, the United Sangtam Baptist Lithroti Ashimukhong Churches Association has a vision to enhance the intellectual, social and spiritual life of the people. It began the Multipurpose Retreat Center on five acres of donated land. One of its projects is a pig farm to help bring economic stability to families among the Sangtam people. It is our hope that this project will lessen the rate of unemployment and help the younger generation develop a dignity of labor work ethic. It is anticipated that this ongoing project will benefit the 30,000 church members and up to six neighboring communities through economic development.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $50 provides two pigs. $100 provides medications and vaccines for 121 pigs each year. $250 feeds 121 pigs for a month. $500 pays the wages of five farm workers
Prayer RequestsPlease pray that this project will grow and generate more employment opportunities for individuals and families in the Sangtam community.
