Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a agricultural conservationist by trade and am extremely impressed with the creativity that Heifer uses to tackle hunger, poverty, and the downtrodden plight of women in poverty-stricken regions. They prove that the old adage, "give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime" is still true. Solving complicated hunger issues through locally driven initiatives offers a hand up with dignity and causes permanent change to occur. If I could give this organization more than 5 stars, I would. I am confident that this organization is a good steward of donor monies. As for the comments about the CEO's salary, I believe that the laborer is worth his/her hire. This person is responsible for piloting a large, multinational organization dependent on donor funding which holds the fate of thousands in its hands. Compare the salary with CEO's of for-profit corporations of similar size for a more accurate reading.

Role:  Donor & I have been donating animals for several years.
