Our Work in Vietnam

The Mekong Delta, Vietnam's agricultural hub, is home to one million vulnerable farmers. Their ability to earn a secure living is hampered by widespread illiteracy, outmoded agricultural practices and growing salt water contamination of rice paddies.

You can help families overcome these hurdles and achieve lasting prosperity by supporting Heifer's work today. Our project in Vietnam, which includes four Mekong Delta provinces, provides families with poultry, beef cattle and cash crop seeds so they can produce a healthy, reliable food supply on their land while growing enough to sell at market.

Pasedena Partners for Change is a diverse southern California group that is passionate about helping families in Vietnam lift themselves out of poverty. The goal is to raise $2.9 million by 2019 to help fund dairy development projects, women's literacy classes, nutrition programs and more. We're excited to work with Pasedena Partners for Change to share our motivation and excitement for changing lives!

Our Work in the USA

Heifer USA works across Arkansas to create good jobs and wealth through social driven, farmer-owned enterprises. Examples of this are Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs and a livestock cooperative in Arkansas.

We use a farmer-owned business model as our development strategy while coordinating with local partners to invest in in businesses, co-operatives and coalitions. This approach puts farm families at the center of local economies, transforming the way people and communities produce, sell and eat their food to create new, vibrant food systems.
