Why Work at Heifer?
Your work makes a difference
Although we walk separate roads and often speak different languages, we share one vision—"a world of communities living together in peace and equitably sharing the resources of a healthy planet." This vision is realized by staff, volunteers and project partners who are diligently focused on providing education and tools to people all over the world who seek sustainable solutions to end hunger and poverty. The ripple effect continues as our farmers adopt Heifer's vision and join in the mission by assisting their neighbors through Passing on the Gift practices and a commitment to our Cornerstones.
What We Do
The core of our model is Passing on the Gift. This means families share the training they receive, and pass on the first female offspring of their livestock to another family. This extends the impact of the original gift, allowing a once impoverished family to become donors and full participants in improving their communities.
The goal of every Heifer project is to help families achieve self-reliance. We do this by providing them the tools they need to sustain themselves, and it's thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
Heifer International has received numerous awards for its work, its headquarters and its workplace.
