It's easier than you think to create positive change in the world. By making a donation of livestock and training, you are laying a strong foundation for a better future for all of us. Heifer is teaming up with people just like you to end hunger and poverty across the globe. We're facing a tough challenge, but it's one that can be solved one sustainable gift at a time — and it starts with you.
We are currently working inside local communities in over 30 countries in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. In the communities where we work, we aim for zero hunger, zero poverty and zero environmental damage. The key to achieving this lies in the hands of small-scale farmers. Our purpose is to work directly with people where they are, so that they can feed their families through sustainable and eco-friendly means.
Signing up for Heifer email is one way to deepen your commitment to ending hunger and poverty. You’ll learn about Heifer’s work through inspiring stories, and we’ll send you information on how you can help move a family from poverty to self-reliance. You'll also get notified of match opportunities that allow your gift to go even further, maximizing your impact.
Families that received resources from Heifer — such as livestock, seeds or training — pass on these gifts to other families in need within their community. Over the course of a few years, the effects of one gift are multiplied across multiple families bringing the community closer and strengthening their self-reliance.
