  • Recipients like Davide learn to read, write, and acquire proficiency in other languages to be able to participate in training sessions and more effectively work with project leaders.
  • Heifer’s EADD projects place refrigerated chilling plants at strategic locations where farms can bring their milk for storage, thus allowing smaller farmers with only a single cow to profitably participate in the dairy industry.
  • More than milk! Heifer also works with recipients to install biogas stoves in which the manure from cows and other animals are used as fuel for cooking and other needs. This also reduces many of the harmful side effects and inefficiencies from the use of wood burning stoves.
  • Dairy cows can produce up to 4 gallons of milk per day with only a small portion necessary for sustenance. The rest is able to be sold at market for extra income that is used for school, medicine, and other basic needs.
