January 2020 Mission
Heifer Project International
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.
Heifer empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but the 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. When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives,
forming community savings and funding small businesses.
The core of Heifer Project model is Passing on the Gift. This means families share the training they receive, and pass on the first female offspring of their livestock to another family. This extends the impact of the original gift, allowing a once impoverished family to become donors and full participants in improving their communities.
The goal of every Heifer project is to help families achieve self-reliance. They do this by providing them the tools they need to sustain themselves, and it’s thanks to the generosity of donors that makes it possible.
Through this month’s mission, we have the power to give a hungry family the training it takes to feed themselves and their children, as well as help their community. Together, we can change the world, one family, one community, at a time.
And it all starts with YOUR gift.
