CATEGORY: PARTNERS

Stories of poverty have motivated Heifer partners around the world to do what they can to end hunger. These partners have contributed in many ways, from raising money by climbing mountains and volunteering in Haiti to gathering donations from high school fundraisers and participating in volunteer spring breaks. We are proud to share the details of how these partners have helped end hunger in our ongoing collection of When Cows Fly stories found below.

Seeds of Knowledge Taking Root on Campus and Worldwide

Honduras

The metaphor of “sowing seeds” is often used when we speak about education.  We plant the seeds of education, and who knows what will grow and how deep the roots will penetrate?  On college campuses around the country, we are able to see and feel real community change and social action that has sprung up because of the planting of Heifer’s educational “seeds.”  But a crop needs help from a farmer to grow to its full potential, and we’ve found that professors of Geography, Animal Science, Nutrition, Psychology, Political Science, Philosophy, and History can make great farmers.  Read more to see how college and university faculty and staff can plant the seeds of sustainable development on their campuses and beyond.
