Guelph’s Bracelet of Hope launching new swine initiative in Lesotho

GUELPH—First it was small chicken operations, now small piggeries could be the next sustainable agriculture initiative helped along by Guelph-based Bracelet of Hope in the tiny African nation of Lesotho.

A contingent of local swine experts will pay their own way to travel to Lesotho on April 19 to make preliminary connections with existing pork producers and government officials in that country, all in an effort to rejuvenate the country's pork industry.
