- Ideas in Action
Heifer's simple yet powerful approach to lifting families out of hunger and poverty has been recognized worldwide, with honors that include the prestigious Conrad Hilton Humanitarian Prize. But the real success comes from the personal stories of families themselves, of using their own talents, their own skills, working with Heifer, to achieve self-reliance.
Hmong farmers pass on gifts of animals, well wishes on Valentine's Day
When you give of your heart, you change yourself and you can change the world. Nowhere was that more in evidence on Sunday, 14 February 2010 (Valentine’s Day), than in the Kek Noi sub-district of Thailand, where families gathered to celebrate the next step in their journey to self-reliance by Passing on the Gift of cows, goats and other animals to families in need.
Arjina, the wife of Ripon, is a member of the Chikashi Heifer Group (a Passing on the Gift group). She has two sons and a daughter.
