WA-035_2013 February WA CoverHeifer's East Africa Dairy Development project is changing the lives of 1 million people previously living in poverty. You've heard us talk about the importance of scaling up Heifer's work to help more people in need, but how do we go about it?

In the February 2013 issue of World Ark, arriving in mailboxes this week, you'll read about how we're working with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, partners and private providers including village banks, to connect small dairy farmers with each other—and with their local economies—to lift up entire communities.

You'll also hear directly from young girls in India, who with Heifer's help are beginning to realize their own strength and potential through education and training. Also learn what challenges India's elderly are facing as young families migrate to cities for better jobs.

Bonus features include everything from tips on how to patiently teach compassion to children to a deep dive into the world of aquaculture, or fish farming, throughout the world.

You can also read the World Ark features online here, with extra stories and videos. Let us know what you think; we look forward to hearing from you!
