Together We Have Power Over Hunger & Poverty
Heifer International started in 1944 as Heifers for Relief. Dan West, an Ohio farmer and relief worker, pitched the idea that they should send a cow to people recovering from World War II instead of a cup.
Heifer international is an organization that provides resources and training for struggling small-scale farmers in countries that need it.
They partner with governments, private organizations, non-profit coalition and other networks in order to find an effective solution with a large impact.
They aim to make long-term changes across the world.
