About the Book
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, Heifer’s programs provide sustainable solutions and empowerment through self-reliance.
Renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe, and staff from Heifer International and BLT Helps, traveled to India to document the profound impact of Heifer’s programs on the lives of women and their families in rural Rajasthan.
Designed by BLT Helps, this book marries the first-hand account of Heifer staff writer, Annie Bergman, with the beautiful and evocative photographs of Brigitte Lacombe.
It’s an unforgettable journey into a world rarely seen.

Heifer envisions a world of communities living together in peace and equitably sharing the resources of a healthy planet. Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Heifer's strategy is to “pass on the gift.” As people share their animals’ offspring with others – along with their knowledge, resources, and skills – an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe. This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for over 60 years. Today, millions of families in 128 countries have been given the gifts of self-reliance and hope.
