Vitalija and her family live in a remote village in the Lithuanian countryside. With both her long-term unemployed, the family found itself completely isolated and excluded from society. In Lithuania, the ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold is EUR 209 per month, with 20 % of the population currently at risk of poverty and social exclusion. To help them get out of their difficult situation, the international Heifer Baltic Foundation provided them with sheep, a cow and training on how to breed their livestock. They now can exchange animals or sell animal products, such as Vitalija’s woollen souvenirs. In this way, the project helps create a community which the family is now part of.
