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.
