When people ask us what Heifer International does, “global development” isn’t always a very satisfying answer. What does that even mean?
For Heifer, it means assembling and activating a global community with the common mission of ending hunger and poverty.
It’s not a mission for the faint of heart. Hunger and poverty are complex problems, and the solutions are therefore equally multi-faceted. Global development is something the world is learning by doing; we don’t have every answer yet, but we do know that progress is happening and ending hunger and extreme poverty is possible.
We hope you join us as we continue on this blog to explore and discuss how this is possible, the challenges we face, and the victories we’ve achieved as a global community.
