Mission Statement

Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty by training communities in sustainable farming, helping small-scale farmers gain access to markets, and empowering women with leadership skills and opportunities.

Description

We believe that the collective power of economic development, food security and nutrition, and environmental sustainability can empower small-scale farmers on the path to living incomes. When those components are multiplied by the positive impacts of gender equality and social capital, communities achieve greater resilience and a sustainable reduction in hunger and poverty.

For the past 75 years, we have worked in 125 countries and provided more than 32 million families with the tools and training to lift themselves from poverty. But the need is still great -- nearly 1 billion people still live in poverty -- and we need your help!
