Project participants, Heifer employees, donors and people just getting to know Heifer all have at least one pressing question in common: How do we know the Heifer model really works?
Heifer does amazing work throughout the world. Read stories of empowerment and transformation.
Heifer Cambodia launched the Improving Income and Nutrition Through Community Empowerment (INCOME) project in early 2013, and its success was immediate, with some farmers seeing a jump from $1 a day in income to $10-$15 a day.
Heifer Haiti, through our REACH project, has been working to build climate change resilience among farmers through reforestation, training on wood energy alternatives, new crop varieties and livestock management practices, and more.
For Zimbabwe’s smallholder farmers, increasing their ability to grow their own foods and expand their own markets means they become less dependent on imported food and increasingly food secure, Heifer’s ultimate goal for the country.
