The mission of Heifer International is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.
Heifer pursues its mission by providing livestock, seeds, trees, and training in animal well-being and environmentally sound agricultural practices to families in more than 50 countries, including the United States. Heifer's gifts of livestock offer benefits that can feed, clothe, house, educate, protect, empower, and motivate resource-poor families living around the world. What makes Heifer unique is our key cornerstone of Passing on the Gift in which recipients agree to pass on one or more of their animals' offspring, or the equivalent, to another family in need. It has been called the "masterstroke" of Heifer's work in the field. Since 1944, Heifer International has helped more than 18 million families in need, providing more than 30 types of food-and-income-producing animals and plants and intensive training in animal management, environmentally-sound farming and community development.
