Week 25: Heifer International
Hello and welcome back to GIVE52! In honor of Father's Day, this week, we are giving to Heifer International to help fathers around the world.
Heifer International's mission is to "work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth". One aspect I love about Heifer is their philosophy that partners who receive gifts share the training they receive and "pass on the first offspring of their livestock to another family". This extends the impact of the original gift, and also means that a family who was once impoverished gets to become donors themselves and help further impact their communities. The goal of every project is to help families achieve self-reliance.
This Father's Day, Heifer is aiming to prevent the need for fathers to leave home and earn a living to send back to their families. Heifer is helping these dads build businesses in their own communities so they can earn a living without sacrificing time with their kids.
Here's to strong fathers. May we know them and support them.
All the best and more,
