Heifer International is a charitable organization that funds gifts to help families achieve self-reliance. They do this by providing them the tools they need to sustain themselves, and it’s thanks to the generosity of donors like you. Your donation to Heifer International can fund projects right here in the United States. Projects in Arkansas and Appalachia help by improving access to nutritious food and increasing income through business and community development. The work of Heifer International involves helping farmers increase production and linking them to new markets, which will, in turn, increase their revenue. They are also working with local schools to build community gardens and encouraging farmers to meet the demand for locally grown grains and produce.
In other countries, such as Armenia, Heifer International helps farmers by providing them with proper equipment so they can grow enough food for their livestock. The places where Heifer has helped are seeing a 25% increase in milk production.
