Through the World Vision Gift Guide at https://catalogue.worldvision.ca/gifts/Forms/Home.aspx?mc=3221603âŒ©=en you can buy gifts that change the world.
For example, you could purchase the gift of livestock. Piglets are fast-growing animals that can plump up to 42 kilograms in 3 months, are simple to raise, are a great source of protein, and provide "natural" fertilizer for gardens. One breeding sow can produce one litter of piglets per year, which can be sold for additional income. One pig is a perfect give and costs $40.
