Here on the Heifer blog we often bring you compelling stories of families whose lives have been transformed through the gift of an animal. These stories often represent a particular point in time, and it's most often near the end of the story.

I'm excited to tell you about a new venture that will offer a different lens into Heifer's work. Starting next week, we're going to bring you stories that follow the progress of specific families — from the beginning of their work with Heifer until they Pass on the Gift to another family. You'll see each family's story of transformation unfold over time, and I think this will give us all a new perspective on what it means to empower others to break the cycle of hunger and poverty.

We'll be starting with programs in Asia/South Pacific, where our colleagues have chosen one family per each region in the countries where we work. They'll be providing quarterly updates about these families, and we're really looking forward to sharing these with you.

So please join us as we follow these stories of transformation.
