Pray for Economic Opportunity for Girls’ Families


When Leonarda and her family received a pig as a gift, they were trained in how to care for and breed it, generating much-needed income.

Girls everywhere are vulnerable to exploitation when their families are extremely poor. In Bolivia, 1.6 million people earn less than $1.25 per day. Sisters Leonarda, 14, Justina, 10, and Tania, 6, now have opportunities their parents didn’t, thanks to the gift of pigs from World Vision donors and training to care for and breed them. It was what the family needed to rise above “just getting by.”


Heavenly Father, You are good. You delight in us when we honor You in our work. For parents who just eke out a daily pittance, bring opportunities for employment or business that fulfills their desire to make life better for their children.
