Yesterday Annie wrote that the World Bank has announced that poverty is on the decline. Yes. This is great to hear as a person who truly believes that if we work together we can end hunger and poverty, but it's also a bit confusing when we hear that one billion people live in hunger.

The good news is, we at Heifer are working hard everyday to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth. Check out this story from our Senior Grant Writer Catherine Scott as she recounts her most recent trip to Honduras visiting our coffee projects that we've partnered with Green Mountain Coffee.

We've also recently received a $1 million donation from the Farm Journal Foundation. This grant will be targeted to sustainable hunger relief projects. The projects will include Heifer’s Seeds of Change in Appalachia and the Arkansas Delta, REACH (Rural Entrepreneurs for Agricultural Cooperation in Haiti), Integrated Livestock Development in Sierra Leone, and the Small Farmer Project for smallholder agriculture development in Armenia.

So what do you think about the numbers regarding poverty and hunger? Off or spot on?
