Where We Work

From Peru To Nepal

Communities make their own decisions about what crops, animals and market strategies make sense for the conditions they experience every day. Community decisions that yield sustainable solutions for poverty and world hunger relief.


In the Andean highlands of Peru, indigenous families raise hearty alpacas for income. Alpacas are gentle on the fragile land and provide families with exceptionally soft wool to make blankets, ponchos, hats and carpets to sell.

Working In Peru


A deadly flood displaced all the families of the Bhandara Women’s Group in Nepal. They are starting over with a Heifer goat project.
