Heifer's Cornerstones are at the heart of the Asia Program's Values-Based Holistic Community Development model for sustainable community transformation. Through this model, project participants are empowered to help themselves and make a sustainable impact on their communities.

Women in Heifer's A/SP projects assume positions of leadership in their communities, living their values and helping others in need. These projects take families from hunger and poverty and move them to a level where they no longer focus solely upon meeting their basic nutrition needs.  Once this progress has been achieved, Heifer implements second-level projects in the same communities, leading to community-level economic transformation.
