More Info

Dan West, an American Farmer served on the front lines of the Spanish Civil war providing relief to weary refugees.  He discovered that a single cup of milk was not enough and had a thought:  What if they had a whole cow?  This “teach a man to fish” philosophy led to the founding of Heifer in 1944, and the idea to enable and empower people still inspires Heifer to this day.

Heifer achieves sustainable change by creating new family businesses and income generation. Their unique approach enhances the capacity of vulnerable small-scale farmers, especially woman, to secure a better life. The foundation of Heifer’s model is to:

  • Provide  livestock, and training  to small scale farmers  which generates both food and business income
  • Partner with producers, processors, suppliers, distributors and consumers to improve production, markets and better prices.
  • Build sustainable communities by passing along the first female offspring of their livestock to neighbors which multiplies the impact 9X to the entire community
  • Promote gender equality, empowering woman by encouraging them to be active contributors in their community.
  • Teach sustainable environmental practices about water conservation, nutrient recycling, organic fertilizers, wastewater management and energy efficiency.

Heifer has a reputation for excellence, operating efficiently and transparently, enjoying a Platinum rating from Guidestar.
