Heifer International

Heifer International is a global development organization on a mission to end hunger and poverty in a sustainable way. We work with communities in 20 countries around the world to strengthen local economies and build secure livelihoods that guarantee a Living Income to small-scale farmers. Since Heifer was founded in 1944, they’ve supported 32 million families to lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Their model focuses on building social capital, finding ways to increase income and assets within farming families, improve their food security and nutrition, and protect the environment – with women’s empowerment and connected communities at the very center. They strengthen local farmer organizations – helping to set them up where they don’t already exist – and provide livestock and seeds, which serve as important sources of food and income. As farmers continue to grow their businesses, they pass on an animal, seeds or other assets to their neighbors, creating stronger, interdependent communities. As their farms expand, Heifer connects farmers to markets and helps them develop the production experience and expertise to make their businesses thrive and grow. Through partnering with governments, companies and non-profit coalitions, they develop local solutions to global problems and build strong, resilient communities.
