More than charity, I would want to challenge those institutions and systems that keep them in poverty.
Today, millions of people who were once hungry will be nourished by milk, eggs and fresh vegetables.Donate to support Heifer's sustainable approach. Families who for generations knew only poverty will be building new homes and starting businesses. Children who once headed out to the fields to do backbreaking work will be heading into schoolrooms to learn to read. And people who never thought they'd be in a position to help someone else will be experiencing the joy of charitable giving. How is this possible? With Heifer's proven approach – more than 65 years in the making – to helping people obtain a sustainable source of food and income.
