Mission Statement

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

Description

We empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity - but our approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. We operate under 12 cornerstones including passing on the gift, promoting gender equality, sustainability, nutrition, and more.

The goal of every Heifer project is to help families achieve self-reliance. We do this by providing them the tools they need to sustain themselves, and it's thanks to the generosity of donors. Heifer in Houston exists to engage the community in a variety of ways - in learning about poverty, in becoming donors, in educating youth and a variety of other ways.
