The gift of an alpaca has been made in your honor to a struggling family living in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains in South America. Few other animals can withstand the harsh Andes conditions. Your donation will provide an alpaca along with training and education in its care.
This gift means a child will get a chance at an education, thanks to the money earned from selling the wool, and a family will have an opportunity to provide and care for themselves taking one step closer to lifting themselves out of poverty.
Heifer International’s mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth. For more than 70 years, we have provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. We currently work in more than 25 countries, including the United States, to help families and communities become self-reliant. (Charity Navigator)
