Working with communities to end hunger and poverty
Background / History
Heifer International believes ending world hunger is possible and within in our grasp. Partners, such as the people of The United Methodist Church are critical to this vision. For decades, United Methodist Churches have contributed to Heifer projects through the Advance which directly helps families to become self-sufficient in sustainable ways. The impact of this partnership is profound and plays an important role in the struggle against hunger and poverty.
Goals & Objectives
Heifer has vowed to scale up its program impact. By 2020, Heifer's goal is to help three million families annually to receive training and animals. The smallholder farmer families that Heifer has been working with for decades grow 70% of the food the world eats every day. Their health, their productivity, their care for the soil and the environment around them is crucial to our future.
Every country where Heifer operates has a detailed list of each project including name, project number, budget, timeline, and a description of the operational plan for each.
Heifer has defined over 30 measurable indicators in the evaluation of our projects.
