Heifer International

“Heifer International is a non-profit organization whose goal is to help end world hunger and poverty through self-reliance & sustainability.” A donation to Heifer International allows the organization to buy livestock for impoverished people around the world. The group practices a pass it on principle, in which those who receive support pass it onto their neighbors. For example, if a cow has a calf, the family would pass the calf onto another person in the community. This increases the sustainability and impact of the gift. My social studies class is working on raising money for this cause. Here’s a video for more information.
