Chime - Uganda
Chime is a Norwegian association which has so far helped 1 300 women to begin keeping pigs in poverty-stricken Ugandan villages.
Giving poor females a small loan in the form of a pig allows them to help themselves on the road to economic independence. This project has led to a marked improvement in prosperity and living standards, and contributes to a growing number of children being able to attend school.
