If you are a teacher, an after-school club adviser or a Heifer fan who wants to learn more, we hope you’ll find these guides useful. Each topic has links to informative articles and definitions of key terms, as well as videos, infographics and photos that bring the words to life. We also include discussion questions, take-action ideas and fundraising suggestions to help tweens and teens engage with the issues.
Our guides collect content into a compact resource appropriate for middle and high school students. /*= $resourceProduct['product_description'];*/ ?>
Goats and chickens are useful — but there’s more to our success! Learn more about how Heifer makes a difference in the communities where we work. We support farmers as they work to earn living incomes, helping them create sustainable futures for themselves and their families. Our practice of Passing on the Gift® transforms recipients into donors and helps build strong, resilient communities.
Livestock play a central role in our work, both as a strategy for ending poverty and for achieving food security and proper nutrition. Livestock provide people food and nutrition, while also giving them tangible assets that can generate income, such as eggs or milk. Each country program has a tailored approach to animal health and husbandry, based on local resources and livestock.
Caring for the Earth is not only part of our mission statement, it’s also integrated into all of our projects. We work with project families to make sure they are caring for their animals and crops in a way that is beneficial to the land. This includes ensuring they have adequate access to clean water and healthy stoves.
The program invites students to volunteer in their communities while raising funds to support our mission around the world.
