Heifer International has been working with communities to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth for more than 70 years. We provide livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. We currently work in 30 countries, including the U.S., to help communities become self-reliant. Passing on the Gift is our core principal, and for each livestock gift, families give the first female offspring to another in need.
Heifer International is now at the forefront of a new era. We will no longer stop at helping farming families grow a bit more food for home and sale. By 2020, we will help 4 million families move all the way out of poverty by helping them secure living incomes.
To meet our ambitious goal, we must grow our network of change makers. We hope you will join us, because it is together that we have power over poverty.
