Congregations in Sacramento Recognized for Their Support

Passing on the gift is far more than a handy catchphrase for Heifer International. It represents the success of a family moving from recipient to donor, hope for a family to gain a sustainable livelihood, and continuation of the circle to lift families from hunger and poverty.

Honduran Village Passes on the Gift

Honduras

Celebrating Passing on the Gift at Concepción de María In early October 2013, the small village of Concepción de María, nestled in the mountain crevices of Honduras, bustled with activity. More than 60 families were gathered at the corner of the local soccer field to celebrate another round of Passing on the Gift. The crew included leaders of the local community, Heifer partners and staff, and joyous family members ready to pass on gifts of calves and chickens. With the lime green mountains acting as the backdrop and silent witness, one-by-one, families took center stage and passed on the same kinds of gifts they had received two years before.

Supporter Writes Poem About Social Impact

It is up to you. A goat can change the world, you know. Why is it that we think so big- the dream of winning the lottery, the wish to be a billionaire, the wish to turn all the bad to good- But we do not take the time to buy a goat? How is it that our thoughts are so absorbed in small daily tasks, and our own individual goals, that we don't take the time to read the one brochure in the mail that may not be junk? To understand that "Heiffer International" has a plan so small it is reachable by all, A plan so big that it can reach across continents and...

When I was given the opportunity to volunteer at Heifer International, I was thrilled because it was an opportunity to support a cause whereby I have personally witnessed its contribution towards alleviating poverty.
