Since 1944, Heifer Project International has provided food- and income-producing animals and training to millions of resource-poor families in 115 countries. Giving microcredit in the form of livestock promotes self-reliance, which builds self-esteem and helps families lift themselves out of poverty. Milk, eggs, wool, draft power and other benefits from the animals provide families with food and income. Selected appropriately and managed well, animals improve nutrition and help families earn money for education, clothes, health care, better housing and starting a small business. Heifer’s grassroots approach lets people and communities make their own decisions about how to improve their lives.
