Our transformational model runs much deeper than providing livestock and agricultural inputs. We work with public and private partners around the world to put the entrepreneurial power of self-reliance in the hands of small-scale farmers by connecting them to markets and their local and national economies.
Since 1944, Heifer has also provided the core lessons and social capital that build the community unity, hope and confidence for farmers once in need to achieve self-sufficiency and become donors themselves.
Our satisfaction in a job well done comes when entire communities have in hand the self-chosen tools and structure they need to support their families with pride and dignity. We invite you to visit our headquarters, offices and learning centers around the world to learn how you can contribute to end world hunger and poverty.
The 19-member body focuses on the outward vision and long-term impacts of our organization. The Board develops broad values and policies, which are then operationalized by Heifer staff.

The leadership team is six senior-most members of the Heifer staff.
