The good news is, we at Heifer are working hard everyday to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth. Check out this story from our Senior Grant Writer Catherine Scott as she recounts her most recent trip to Honduras visiting our coffee projects that we’ve partnered with Green Mountain Coffee.
We’ve also recently received a $1 million donation from the Farm Journal Foundation. This grant will be targeted to sustainable hunger relief projects. The projects will include Heifer’s Seeds of Change in Appalachia and the Arkansas Delta, REACH (Rural Entrepreneurs for Agricultural Cooperation in Haiti), Integrated Livestock Development in Sierra Leone, and the Small Farmer Project for smallholder agriculture development in Armenia.
