It's not a hand out, it's a hand up
Heifer International, has been helping families and communities to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity, with more than just a handout. For 70 years Heifer International has been bringing sustainable agriculture and commerce to impoverished communities. This is accomplished by providing families with animals that can provide both food and economic security. The agricultural products that are derived from the animals such as milk, eggs, and honey can either be traded for other goods, or sold in the community- bringing income into the villages which then expands opportunities for building schools, creating cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses.
