Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth.
By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, Heifer International empowers them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope.
With gifts of livestock and training, Heifer projects help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. Animal donations are referred to as "living loans" because in exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need. It's called Passing on the Gift – a cornerstone of Heifer's mission that creates an ever-expanding network of hope and peace.
