We are excited to share that Heifer International India was approved for a new dairy program. Heifer will provide dairy cows to 6,000 farming families to help increase their income. The program will apply Heifer's keen focus on women's empowerment and preserving the environment.

This program is part of Heifer International's new program approach. Instead of approving a project at a time, entire country programs will be implemented.

Mahendra Lohani, Heifer's vice president of Asia/South Pacific, tells us how we can reach more hungry families. We look forward to sharing news with you as this program progresses.
