Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. They have used a "teach a man to fish" philosophy for over 70 years and that philosophy still inspires their work to end hunger and poverty throughout the world once and for all. Heifer International empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but the approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps brings sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Their animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. DRCC raises money each year to support Heiffer International's work across the globe.
