Chance For All - a new project in Romania

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Thursday, October 25, 2012
Heifer Romania launched a new project, Chance for All, in the southernmost region of the country, Zimnicea, on October 18, 2012. This project follows Heifer's new model to help more resource poor farming communities beyond subsistence to achieve sustatinability through partnering with governments, the private sector, multilaterals and foundations.

The $2,464,300 , or 1.9 million Euro, program was developed in collaboration with Heifer International, Heifer Romania, Bóthar Ireland and Danone Romania, with strong financial support from the Danone Ecosysteme investment fund.

The project aims to encourage small producers to work together to have long-term profitable businesses based on the production of high-quality milk. This initiative has a major training component, whereby farmers will participate in specialized courses on health, nutrition, and cattle reproduction and milking. This knowledge will enable them to obtain milk that is of European Union-quality standard.

In the first two years, more than 200 heifers will be distributed to 200 farm families. By the end of the four year project, a total of 800 families will have benefited from the gift of heifers.
