community involvement & Giving back

HEIFER INTERNATIONAL

On a global level, one of our favorite organizations is Heifer International.  With the goal of ending world hunger, they not only give food to the hungry, but also provide them with the necessary tools and education so people may help themselves rise up out of hunger and poverty.

SUSTENANCE

They donate 2 of the same animal species (cows, sheep, chickens, etc) to a village under the highest and best use (milk, wool, eggs, etc) for both their own needs and to raise village money.  That village then donates the offspring of these animal duos to a nearby village in need.

EDUCATION

A team of specialists also teach the locals how to better their skills in animal raising, farming techniques, conservation, planting trees for fruit, soil preservation and better home building techniques.  It is truly a whole approach to eradicating hunger and poverty one village, one country at a time.

At the local level. HPR supports Milwaukee's Hunger Task Force. They believe that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity.  They are working to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to anyone in need.
