The domestication of animals has to be one of the biggest developments in human history. They are obviously a wonderful direct food source, but they’re even better as an indirect food source when they provide things like milk, eggs, fertilizer, and more animals. So when we talk about battling poverty, it makes sense to go back to what worked for us in the past: animals. That’s what Heifer International does. They’re a Little Rock, AR based non-profit that enables people to “donate animals to poor countries.” It’s an ingenious idea, and it’s even kind of fun. Not only does an animal provide a source for food and other products, but it also requires responsibility. Caring for an animal is an ultimate life lesson.
I can keep telling you about how great Heifer International is, or you can listen to Alton Brown (one of my favorite food celebrities):
It may be hard to understand how an animal can change lives when you go to the supermarket to buy food, but Heifer International’s Success Stories really show you what animals make possible. It’s such a cool organization, that you should really take a look at their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for Community Engagement Coordinators in Houston, TX and Brooklyn/Long Island, NY. The jobs require some prior experience, but they look like they can be a good fit for new grads.
