Help Lift Families Out Of Poverty.

Ending poverty begins with agriculture

Heifer International is on a mission to end hunger and poverty in a sustainable way by supporting and investing alongside local farmers and their communities.

Heifer's Mission

Heifer works to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities it serves. It programs support entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up.

It begins with a seed investment of livestock or agriculture, followed by mentorship to help project participants build a business, and ultimately to gain access to supply chains and markets.

These families are able to earn a living income and continuously lift up their communities as they train the next generation of leaders.

By supporting and training the world's farmers, ranchers, and female business owners, Heifer is investing in a new breed of success.

Heifer's History: 75 Years of Lasting Change

In 1944, Dan West began outlining a simple but groundbreaking plan to tackle hunger around the world. His philosophy still inspires Heifer’s work today. Partnering with farmers across a range of different livestock and crops, Heifer creates unique solutions to local challenges. Together, Heifer builds inclusive, resilient economies, so communities can develop effective ways to end global hunger and poverty in a sustainable way.
