From the CEO
Read about CEO Pierre Ferrari's daring exploits.
Nearly 870 million people around the world don’t have enough to eat, but many of us can only imagine what that feels like. For those who take the challenge to live on less than $1.50 day, it will change our perspective on how being hungry really feels.
The escalating crisis in Ukraine has so far occurred in urban areas away from Heifer communities. Ukraine Country Director Viktor Teres reports that “staff and our project communities, including Danone, are safe.”
As we celebrate the International Year of Family Farming in 2014, I would like to highlight how, when encouraged and supported, smallholder farmers are capable of shaping an entire industry.
When you’re at the helm of an organization fighting hunger and poverty for 70 years, it’s easy to get excited when you see “poverty” as a topic in mainstream media channels.
Family farmers may hold the key to helping stem global crises like extreme hunger, stunted children, water shortages, among many others, says Heifer President and CEO.
