Heifer Foundation Study Tours
A Heifer Foundation Study Tour is intended to provide an advanced experience for the participant, taking you on an in-depth trek into how Heifer works in impoverished areas around the world and how attendees might participate in fund development for that area.
Heifer Foundation Study Tours are specialized expeditions through spectacular geography and unique ecosystems to visit remote villages and isolated peoples. But a Heifer Foundation Study Tour goes beyond sightseeing. It is a journey into the daily lives of extraordinary people. As you visit with the farmers and families who are working with Heifer to improve their lives, you will learn more than you could have imagined.
All of Heifer Foundation's Study Tours let participants observe Heifer's model of sustainable development in action. While projects vary widely, visitors might see a bio-gas unit generating power from manure in China, meet the alpacas that help farmers subsist in the fragile high altitudes of Ecuador or see families harvest honey from their bee colonies in Poland. Some tours focus on specific issues like gender equity, agroecology, HIV/AIDS, animal well-being, microenterprise and education.
All Heifer Foundation Study Tours take you beyond your ideas about poverty and show you what the human spirit is capable of overcoming. When you meet the communities helped by Heifer, you will be touched by their stories, motivated by their achievements and inspired to overcome the challenges in your own life and community.
