Event Details

Attendees will enjoy a lively afternoon of family fun, food and plenty of animals to go around. The event will feature several exhibits where you can learn about our work with women’s empowerment.

The event will take place at the NBCUniversal backlot, which has a rich, storied history of movie magic that goes back for generations. NBCUniversal's commitment to sustainable, environmentally responsible operations aligns with Heifer's core principles of good stewardship and conservation.

Who We Are

Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty around the world through sustainable farming. Our work focuses on increasing opportunities for women by providing them the resources and training necessary to be successful in their work.

We are dedicated to removing barriers to women’s economic empowerment and will continue to be strong advocates for women’s equitable participation in decision-making in their families, in their communities, and in policies, systems and practices that impact their well-being.

How We Work

Here’s how we help families lift themselves out of poverty:

  1. Heifer provides families with livestock and training in environmentally sound agriculture.
  2. Families use income generated from livestock to meet pressing needs first, like food, medicine, clothing, housing and school.
  3. Next, we help people start or expand farmer-owned businesses, cooperatives and social enterprises.
  4. Cooperatives connect with processors and distributors, creating inclusive market systems to provide lasting sustainable change.
