Heifer International

Heifer Project International was founded in 1944 by Church of the Brethren educator Dan West, whose vision was a world of communities living together in peace and equitably sharing the resources of a healthy planet. Heifer's mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth. Heifer's work helps people become self-reliant through training and livestock gifts that grow and multiply. Our success is proven: since 1944, we have helped 38 million people move from poverty toward self-reliance.
