My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA
I give monthly to Heifers, and while they do have some "office" problems whenever there is a money issue, their work makes them worth my time and money.
In my opinion, it is more beneficial to work on long-term, sustainable means of subsistence so that impoverished people are give a way to earn their living, as opposed to short-term solutions. While it is very important to treat the immediate 'symptoms' of poverty, and I am not impugning those charities in any way, I like that Heifer treats the 'disease' behind the problem.
I know the President makes over $250,000 but this is hardly obscene considering she is running a huge organization at a fraction of what other CEOs would make.
In short, I am a big fan of this charity and would happily recommend it to anyone.

Get them a better accounting/computer system.
