Women stand in a field laughing

GFWC

At Heifer International, we believe in the power of women — the power to overcome, to flourish, to thrive. But when overwhelmed by hunger and poverty, this power often seems unattainable. That’s where Heifer — and generous partners like the GFWC — come in. For more than a decade, GFWC has enthusiastically supported Heifer projects, providing women with the resources, education and opportunity they need to lift themselves out of poverty — and discover their power.

Women Thrive When Your Club Chooses Heifer!

At Heifer International, we believe women have limitless potential, but limited opportunity. Women in our projects receive resources and training so they can be successful. In the hands of women farmers, livestock, education and specialized training leads to better nutrition, access to health care, increased income and assets, clean water, schools, libraries, direct access to markets, roads, transportation, and so much more. 

 
WHEN WOMEN HAVE THE RESOURCES TO THRIVE: 
  • They become leaders in their communities 
  • They can earn a steady income on their own
  • Their farms become more productive
  • Their children can go to school
  • Communities have a reliable source of nutritious food
