A year ago, St. Martin de Porres children received an unexpected gift from visitors: two piglets! With much enthusiasm, a small pig farm was built at the opposite end of the rice paddies. Only a year later, there are already 39 piglets. For no additional cost, they are raised on leftovers and home grown food and are now a happy, squeaky bunch of animals. In the village market, where they will be sold, an adult pig fetches around USD 85. This new revenue will contribute to covering St. Martin de Porres day-to-day expenses.
