Since 1996, Heifer has supported nearly 60 projects in Albania and Macedonia. From Heifer's portfolio of historic, reporting, and active projects, eight were purposively selected with 385 persons interviewed for the evaluation. On average, participant families' unadjusted gross annual income attributable to the project was $3,803 and the unadjusted value of assets attributable to Heifer was nearly $5,500 USD per participant family. Moreover, Heifer has had a modest impact on basic needs and social capital, a large impact on livestock care and management, and education, and a small environmental impact, in the sampled projects.
