You can make a difference
We all want to feel like we’re doing something meaningful. Imagine knowing that you are part of success stories like this one.
“My mother has gone through a lot of struggles in past and now she has become self-dependent… That’s why I want to thank you.”
Because of programs in her area, Keya’s mother was able to receive support and training from Heifer. With that training and support, she started her own dairy and poultry farming.
Not long afterwards, she took the valuable lessons she learned from her time with Heifer and opened a savings account for her daughter. Keya’s mother continues to earn enough from her business to afford Keya’s school fees and a tutor.
It’s been valuable for Keya to watch her mother’s growth. Because she saw her mother provide for their family and become a leader in their community, Keya now hopes to continue in her footsteps and help others.
Thanks to her mother’s hard work and support from incredible people like you, there is no telling what Keya will be able to accomplish — or how many others like her will have a better future.

From Cup To Cow: Cultivating Generations Of Hope For The Future
In 1938, an Ohio farmer named Dan West was directing a milk distribution to hungry refugee children when he thought, “They don’t need a cup. They need a cow.”
Six years later, West founded Heifer Project International, a charity working to end hunger and poverty and protect the earth. In the decades since, Heifer has helped 15.5 million families in more than 125 countries improve their quality of life and move toward greater self-reliance.
In 1991, Heifer International’s Board of Directors created Heifer Foundation, a separate nonprofit organization whose mission is to create, manage, and grow an endowment to secure Heifer’s ability to continue its mission well into the future.
Your investment in Heifer Foundation or Heifer International is an investment in bringing help and hope where it is needed most. Joining our supporters will help cultivate long-term, annual support for Heifer International’s work worldwide, touching the lives of millions of people in need.
