Carmen Vaca, or Doña “Choca” as everyone knows her, is an exceptional woman. She works with her husband, Saul Herrera, producing cocoa, coffee, rice, beans, citrus and cupuaçu fruits, açaí berries and chestnuts on their farm near the Brazilian border in Guayaramerín, Bolivia.
After realizing that he didn't have enough food to feed his family, Yang Qilu turned to Heifer, where he and his wife learned how to raise chickens and, in turn, their income.
Thank you to the more than 2000 people who came out to Heifer Farm's Global Harvest Festival the first weekend of October! It'st he perfect time of year to give back, so join us at the Living Gift Market at Heifer Farm in Rutland, MA!
When the Peters family lost their son, Collin, they decided they would honor him by gifting sheep to families in need through Heifer. Nearly seven years later, more than $33,000 has been raised to purchase more than 275 sheep.
Throughout November, the month where we celebrate World Toilet Day, we'll be talking about the importance of clean water and proper sanitation in the fight to end hunger and poverty.
Meet Edwin Phiri, Heifer's Proposal Development Manager from Zimbabwe. "The best thing about working at Heifer is seeing the impact of the work we do and how this helps transform poor communities."
