Jean Pierre Venette belongs to Heifer’s Rural Entrepreneurs for Agricultural Cooperation in Haiti program, or REACH. She and 39 other women work together to promote better crop and animal production while becoming thriving farmers and businesswomen.
Heifer is excited to share the launch of new Read to Feed resources! The new book, entitled Flora and the Runaway Rooster, was written by author John Claude Bemis and illustrated by Robert Crawford.
Sita Poudel received two goats from Heifer International in 1993. The goats and training made such a difference that she has dedicated her time to helping other women transform their own lives ever since.
Today is International Day of the Girl Child, a day to raise awareness of the inequality faced by girls worldwide and to support wider opportunities for them.
Before Heifer, the farmers in the Bamendjinda community of Cameroon were stuck in a cycle of poverty. Thanks to Heifer and the farmer's hard work, they have now become agents of change in their community.
