Alpacas help families feed themselves
By buying alpaca gift donations for charity, you can provide a struggling family with a lifetime of opportunities. Your donation will provide an alpaca to a family in need, along with training and education in its care.
Heifer provides alpacas to families living in high altitudes in the Andes Mountains of South America. Few other animals can withstand the harsh conditions.
The gift of an alpaca means a child will finally get a chance at an education, thanks to the money earned from selling the wool. Donating an alpaca also means a family will have an opportunity to provide and care for themselves — one step closer to lifting themselves out of poverty.
