How you can help
In Rwanda, 45 per cent of people still live in poverty because they have to rely on small-scale farming. Women bear the brunt of this unpaid, undervalued work, spending four times longer than men collecting water and firewood.
But now we can help these women and their families escape the cycle of poverty - and it all starts with giving a family a pig and a biogas digester. Pig poo is placed in the digester, and the methane is piped into the family's kitchen for cooking. This allows women to spend more time earning money, so they can educate their children and pass this progress on to a new generation.
