When you join Friends of Heifer, our monthly giving program, you will be part of a group of passionate donors determined to make a difference through monthly contributions. Helping people is something to feel good about. And now you can pack all your good feelings in your very own goat tote.
Every gift you make to Heifer makes a difference. But when we know your gift is coming each month, it helps us better plan and manage our long-term projects — meaning we can ultimately help more families lift themselves out of poverty.
Jit was forced to marry a much older man when she was just 16. They had five sons together, but two died in infancy. She then lost her husband, becoming a widow and a single mother of three while watching her already low social status evaporate. Shunned and burdened by poverty, she knew she must do something to create a better future for her family. Step by step, she rebuilt her life and emerged as a thriving entrepreneur who now generously shares her wealth.
Jit is a leader who uses her determination and skills to lift up her family, her friends and her community. Here is her story.
This offer applies to any monthly gift of $10 or more made to this campaign. Please allow eight weeks for the goat tote delivery. Under IRS guidelines the estimated value of the benefits received is not substantial; therefore, the full amount of your gift is a deductible contribution.
