Ending Hunger and Poverty Since 1944

A mother and her daughter hold a glass of milk from the cow they received from Heifer International.

At Heifer International, we believe in what’s possible. What began as a dream to provide families with “not a cup, but a cow” has blossomed into a global mission of ending hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth.

And since 1944, we’ve helped more than 42 million families overcome the greatest of obstacles.

How We Do It

  1. A family living in poverty receives animals and training from Heifer. The animals give products like milk and eggs, which can be eaten or sold.
  2. The family learns how to create a business with their new source of income. As their business grows, so does their income.
  3. With a secure source of income, parents discover their power ... and can provide for their families in ways they’ve never been able to before.
