See where Heifer is working around the world to end hunger.
Millburn Middle School from New Jersey through the PLOP Global Peer Leader Outreach Program organized an urgent fundraiser to respond to the needs of the Nepalese families who recently suffered two major earthquakes. Knowing the impact of their efforts and contributions, the students and staff wanted to become part of the solution to the countless problems derived from this natural disaster and raised a total of $1,298.72. The contribution was sent to the Heifer International headquarters who directed the money to Heifer International's Disaster Rehabilitation Fund for Nepal. The MMS/PLOP Global and their advisor, María Deraville, hope their contributions will alleviate to some degree the problems of the Nepalese families. Update: María notified Heifer International that their total actually amounted to $1,358.72!
I received two goats from Heifer International and applied the knowledge I acquired during Improved Animal Management training while raising them. After receiving the animals I have passed on two goats. My small effort has helped my family have a better life. I hope other women will be able to achieve bigger success by working harder.
Livestock are at the very core of much of how Heifer works with families.
