To work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.

Description

Heifer envisions...
A world of communities living together in peace and equitably sharing the resources of a healthy planet.

Heifer's mission is...
To work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.

Heifer's strategy is...
To "Pass on the Gift." As people share their animals' offspring with others - along with their knowledge, resources, and skills - an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe.

Faith Heritage Statement
Heifer International was founded in 1944 by Church of the Brethren educator Dan West. His vision of a worldwide program to end hunger and poverty was born of his Christian faith. From the beginning, the vision has encompassed all spiritual paths and all people who understood that to serve God, we serve our brothers and sisters. Today, Heifer comprises people of faith working together around the world to realize its vision.

Heifer's History
This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for over 65 years. Today, millions of families in 128 countries have been given the gifts of self-reliance and hope.
