Have you watched this?
Super powerful, right?
Did you know that Heifer International was started from the idea of one man? Dan West, Heifer's founder, saw a problem and envisioned a solution. Over time, that idea evolved into a model that has helped 13.6 million families lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.
What if you had the next idea?
Dan West lived way before the Internet. Way before institutions like the World Bank asked the question: What's YOUR Solution?
Some of those ideas sound familiar? Access to technology. Reducing waste. Safety nets. Storage capabilities. Research and extension linkages. Empowerment of small-scale farmers. Increase food productivity.
These are things Heifer does. So what does this mean? It means we're on the right track, but there is always room for new ideas. Head over to World Bank's website, read through the ideas already posted, and post your own. Participate in their Open Forum: Food Crisis April 14-15. And post your ideas here!
