families together

Let’s Unite to Keep Families Together

Wherever we’re from, we all want the same things. 

Food on the table. A roof over our heads. Safety and security for ourselves and our loved ones. The ability to dream big, knowing that maybe one day we can turn those dreams into reality.

But for millions of people, this is not the case. Theirs is a world of rising inequality and political instability that leads to violence and uncertainty. Denied the opportunity to make a decent income, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers are forced to leave their homes and loved ones in search of a better future.

They take long and arduous journeys, fraught with danger and uncertainty, because they want what we all want – the chance at a better life for themselves and their families.

BUT WHAT IF THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS?

What if they could take their passion and determination to succeed and use it to strengthen their communities? What if they could be their own bosses and provide jobs to others within their communities? That would be truly transformational.

At Heifer International, we're about more than just animals.

For 75 years, Heifer International has worked with farmers and their communities to build sustainable businesses that provide local people with living incomes. Through our community-led development programs, people get access to the tools and expertise they need to make their businesses successful – and they start to see how they can be the solution to the problems they’re facing.

We’ve trained millions of people in environmentally-friendly farming practices, working alongside them as they build and run their businesses and support their communities.

We’ve connected farmers to markets so they can increase their sales and profits, and scale up their businesses.

And we’ve focused on women farmers, as we know that when women have control over their incomes, hunger and poverty disappear.
