‘Pass on the Gift’

n an unprecedented series of events on five continents, almost 5,200 families who are winning their own battles against hunger and poverty are preparing to help their struggling neighbors become self-reliant.

From Nepal to Uganda, from Kosovo to Ecuador, from Indonesia to Zambia, families in April will donate dairy cows, dairy goats, alpacas, and water buffalo, as well as bees, trees, and seeds, to their struggling neighbors.

In turn, the families who receive the donated resources pledge in time to also pass on the gifts – often the first offspring of their livestock – to yet more neighbors facing hunger and poverty.

In April, the families will receive livestock and others resources during approximately 250 emotional and poignant Passing on the Gift ceremonies hosted by Heifer International in almost 30 countries.
