Heifer Participants gathering fruit from their trees


The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) and Heifer International share a common desire to make life better for our neighbors worldwide. GFWC has supported Heifer projects for decades, providing gifts of livestock which enable families to lift themselves out of poverty and reach a living income.

Women-led, small-scale farming is central to Heifer’s approach to end hunger and poverty through the gifts of livestock and training.

What Can Your Gift Do?

Your livestock gift, when combined with training and access to tools and resources, enables families to build a thriving farm or business, changing their outcomes:  

  • Children can go to school
  • Families get better access to health care
  • Communities have a reliable source of nutritious food
  • Farmers have a steady income


As COVID-19 continues to devastate communities already living in poverty, the need has never been greater. Your donation gives families the education, resources and opportunities needed to create innovative responses to the challenges brought on by COVID-19 — and escape hunger and poverty once and for all.
