Double Your Impact for Honduras and Guatemala

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Friday, March 15, 2013
Two for one. Who doesn't like that? Generous donors and international partners have offered to cover half of new project costs in Honduras and Guatemala through matching donations. This is a great opportunity to help poor families in these central American countries lift themselves out of poverty and build resilient communities. We need to generate $831,000 from generous donors like you. Two for one. We don't want to leave any of the match on the table! Donate to these projects now.

Heifer's work in Honduras has already helped families broaden their source of income through the gifts of diary cows and chickens and the extensive training. These projects have already achieve successes through multiple Passing on the Gift ceremonies, where initial recipients pass on the next generation of livestock to others in their community. These gifts have also made the families more resilient. When a drought in 2012 destroyed the corn harvest, milk income from a Heifer cow helped supplement income from existing cashew harvests.

Heifer Guatemala has helped improve the nutrition and food security for poor families through the gifts of chickens and goats. These livestock provide valuable protein that the families would otherwise ill afford on a regular basis. The extensive training and participant committment to the 12 Cornerstones have built communities among families in remote rural areas.
