About Heifer International
Heifer International's mission is to work to end world poverty and hunger. Dan West, the founder of Heifer International, was a farmer from the American Midwest. He went to the Spanish Civil War as an aid worker.
How It Works
Heifer International's approach is more than just giving them a simple handout. Heifer links people together and gives them sustainable agriculture to poor areas.
Passing on the Gift
Families share the gift of the training they received by giving their first female offspring to another family. This allows another family to benefit and the gift to be extended. You have the power to change everything!
