The road to success
Our projects are known for the local-led integrated approach on income improvement, food security and climate change adaptation. When this is combined with a focus on women’s empowerment, better opportunities for youth and group collaboration, strong and resilient communities emerge that have the power to end hunger and overcome poverty.
Heifer developed holistic tools to measure its interventions alleviating vulnerable households out of poverty and to measure the economic sustainability of Farmer Owned Agricultural Businesses.
