Heifer's 12 Cornerstones

Working with its staff around the world, Heifer International developed a working set of principles called the Cornerstones for Just and Sustainable Development.

The Cornerstones are time-tested principles, values and strategies that provide guidelines for assessing and understanding what the community stands for. They also give potential project partners a comprehensive picture of Heifer's priorities, ideals to which they can return again and again.

Just like the members of the community, none of the Cornerstones can stand alone - all work together to achieve Heifer's holistic approach to development. These 12 values-based factors form the acronym "PASSING on the GIFTS".

PASSING ON THE GIFT
Every family who receives a gift of livestock and training is motivated to pass on the same to another family in need. This helps maximize resources and gives families the dignity and compassion they need to overcome their mental state of poverty.

ACCOUNTABILITY
Heifer encourages its participants to focus on fulfilling oneís accountability rather than to demand for oneís rights. Valuing what you can do for the community rather than focusing on the reverse creates a favorable environment to initiate social and economic change.

SHARING AND CARING
Heifer believes that global problems can be solved if all people are committed to sharing what they have and caring about others. Heifer promotes sharing and caring to aide in solving hunger and poverty and caring for the earth.

SUSTAINABILITY AND SELF-RELIANCE
Heiferís projects aim to make communities socially and economically self-reliant by encouraging the community itself to design and lead project activities. Heiferís investment in physical inputs, capacity building and technical strengthening strive for sustainability.

IMPROVED ANIMAL MANAGEMENT
Taking rural farm communities from subsistence to resilience means increasing its livestock and agricultural productivity. Heifer does this through inputs, trainings and institution building.

See Picture

NUTRITION AND INCOME
Increased income fosters better nutrition and good nutrition is required to be able to work to gain better income. Heifer works to promote both through its projects and focuses on equitable distribution of income and nutrition amongst family and community.

See Picture

GENDER AND FAMILY FOCUS
Heiferís projects promote gender equity by choosing women as primary participants through whom project inputs and trainings are given. Men and women share in decision-making, ownership of the Heifer animals, labors, and the benefits of projects.

See Picture

GENUINE NEED AND JUSTICE
Heifer is a partner to people who truly need an opportunity to improve the quality of their lives and who can benefit from modest support. Participants are encouraged to understand genuine need while making decisions and ensure that decisions made are just.

See Picture

IMPROVING THE ENVIRONMENT
Heifer understands that there can be no sustainability without protecting and improving the environment. This is especially crucial for the families it works with who are largely dependent on natural resources.

See Picture

FULL PARTICIPATION
Although Heifer works through women, it encourages full participation from the family and community to achieve impacts. Improving social capital to increase full participation is one of the keys to achieving sustainable holistic development.

See Picture

TRAINING AND EDUCATION
Heifer uses training as a means of spreading general awareness, providing education, building capacity and empowering communities. Group members share the knowledge received from the trainings with their families and community members leading the way toward holistic community development.

See Picture

SPIRITUALITY
Spirituality is common to all people and groups, regardless of their religion or beliefs. Heifer promotes spirituality through its values, beliefs about the value and meaning of life, a asset of connectedness to the earth and a shared vision of the future.
