How Heifer Feeds the World
Heifer International Headquarters is located in Little Rock, Arkansas. If you don't know Heifer and have a charitable heart, learn all you can. Heifer does fundraising as a charity, but they do things differently.
A wise proverb; "Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime" is how Heifer International operates.
When Heifer solicits funds, it is in for agricultural purchases, which go to third-world countries, tribes in poverty, and other parts of the world, where entire villages are starving for lack of food.
Heifer's unique program makes gifts of chickens, ducks, goats, rabbits, heifers, and even the Noah's Ark Menagerie; which is a whole lot of critters. Not only do they provide the livestock and fowl, but they go along, and assist the communities they help, with growing their herds, and becoming an agri-business.
Heifer Ranch is located in Perryville, Arkansas, about 45 minutes from Little Rock. You could do both the ranch and headquarters in one day, but for the full experience, take a couple of days, stay at the ranch overnight, and then hit the headquarters.
Contact Heifer and request their Catalog, or save postage and paper and view it online.
