Come on down to Avalon Beach RSL on the 19 MAY for our piggy fundraising event! We have an assortment of pig trinkets and figures for sale. All pigs were donated to the Friends of Soibada charity by Col, Avalon's recently retired local butcher.
The night will be a great opportunity to chat with members of the Friends of Soibada team as well as access to grazing boards and lucky door prizes!
Bookings through trybooking:
All funds raised will go towards our pig project which looks to purchase piglets for the community members of Soibada. Up to 80% of rural households in Timor-Leste rear pigs to fill very important cultural and economic roles within their communities. With help from veterinarians in Timor Leste as well as Australia's Market Development Facility, Australia is looking to improve pig rearing practices to support the sustainability of pig programs and the farmers economic outcomes provided by this.
For more information on the importance of pig projects in Timor-Leste, check out the post from the Australian Embassy in Timor-Leste on the 15 February 2023.
