Beyond Hunger: Communities of Change

For 70 years, Heifer International has been finding solutions to hunger and poverty. We've had an impact in more than 125 countries and through 20.7 million families.

But there is still work to do. Our communities are creating change. Together, we have power over hunger and poverty; we can move to a world beyond hunger. Together, we're providing resources, empowering women and improving the environment every day.
