For nearly 30 years, Garnet Hill has worked with like-minded organizations to improve communities and better peoples’ lives. And for 65 years, Heifer International has worked with communities around the world to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. It is this shared desire to strengthen communities, at home and abroad, that forged the partnership between the distinguished catalog merchandiser and the global humanitarian organization.
Heifer’s solution to hunger and poverty is to provide the world’s impoverished the gift of livestock and training in environmentally sound agriculture. Heifer’s cornerstone of Passing on the Gift—where each recipient gives one or more of their animals’ offspring, or the equivalent, to others in need—creates an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance.
Heifer is addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty in more than 50 countries. In the United States, one household in 10 does not have access to enough food to meet basic needs. Heifer’s activities in the U.S. focus on bringing resources together with communities in need to strengthen sustainable, locally focused food systems—providing the security of a reliable source of nutritious food. In our work across the world, from Asia and Africa, to Central and South America, Heifer’s proven method helps communities lift themselves out of poverty – one family at a time.
How can you help?
Heifer and Garnet Hill need your help to eliminate hunger and poverty around the world. When you give to Heifer International, you help families in need, who then pass on their gifts to even more families, improving the livelihood of entire communities. With the gift of a heifer, goat, flock of chicks or a hive of honeybees, you help strengthen communities and their move toward self-reliance.
