See where Heifer is working around the world to end hunger.
Regine Ndjiwo, 55, and Justine Passo, 50, are members of Heifer projects in the western region of Cameroon, a little over nine miles from Heifer’s office in Bamenda. They are part of GIC APEB (Groupe d’Initiative Commune d’Apiculture et Eleveurs de Bamepah) created in Bamepah Village.
I learned from the UN FAO report, The State of Food and Agriculture (2009) "Livestock in the Balance," that 40 percent of global farm income comes from livestock, and that 80 percent of the "undernourished" are rural! Clearly the Heifer project is right on target.

Livestock are at the very core of much of how Heifer works with families.
Baptista and Belia Mzukani have big plans for their daughter, Esnart.
One of Heifer International’s biggest projects is EADD – the East Africa Dairy Development project.
From the time he was a child and on into adulthood, Louis Desira walked to a river two kilometers away from his home in Maniche to get water for the day.
