Mission Overview
"Ending Hunger, Caring for the Earth." Heifer International learned over the years that a holistic approach is necessary in order to build sustainable communities. So it has developed a set of global initiatives - Agroecology, Animal Well-Being, Gender Equity, HIV-AIDS, Microenterprise, Urban Agriculture, and Young People's Initiative-areas of emphasis that must be addressed in order to meet its mission of ending world hunger, poverty, and caring for the earth. Each year the children of FCC lead the church in a Heifer project with a goal of helping families living in the most extreme poverty both within the U.S. and internationally.
