Help END Hunger

The Organization

Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.

History of The Organization

FOR MORE THAN 70 YEARS Heifer International has partnered with and helped communities in need. They have worked in 125 COUNTRIES to attain sustainable livelihoods through community-owned interventions. They have helped
25 MILLION families lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.


Heifer International recognizes that its work effects more people than the beneficiaries of its projects. In order to measure the spillover effects, Heifer International is using Social Network Analysis to systematically collect data on spillover effects.
