Message from our CEO

Welcome from Pierre Ferrari

Heifer International CEO Pierre Ferrari
Heifer International CEO Pierre Ferrari.

As president and CEO of Heifer International, I want to thank you for your interest in lending a compassionate and helping hand to our work to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.

The helping hand reference is key, because that is what we do for resource-challenged and hungry small-scale farmers around the world every day. Heifer doesn’t give out cash. We don’t deliver food aid and we don’t think short term. We work hand-in-hand with limited resource farmers, most of them women, to transform their lives.

But it’s not Heifer doing the transformation, it is the women who use the inputs we provide—animals, training, access to markets—to grow more and better food, to feed their families, to increase income and assets, to become not only resilient but prosperous by their standards.

Our employees are our greatest assets, so we take the selection and hiring process very seriously.

If you are interested in joining a globally diverse workforce committed to working with families to achieve lives of self-reliance, dignity and resilience, supported by strong social and economic capital, I encourage you to apply today to help ignite these transformations.

Thank you again for your interest in Heifer International and our work.

In partnership,

Pierre U. Ferrari
President and CEO
