Job Description

Heifer International Zambia
Heifer International Zambia is a branch office of Heifer Project International that works with resource-limited households and communities with a desire to improve their lives through community development activities such as agricultural and livestock production as well as organizational and agribusiness development. Heifer’s focus over the past seventy-seven (77) years has been on sustainable development anchored in its mission to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.
Since 1944, Heifer International has helped more than 36 million families lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Our goal is to help families achieve living incomes, which will allow them to feed their families daily, educate all their children; and have proper housing, water, hygiene, and other essential resources. When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings, and funding small businesses.
