Pierre Ferrari of Heifer International on Food Security, Food Sovereignty, & the Impact of Livestock in Developing Countries
In today's episode of the podcast, I chat with Pierre Ferrari of Heifer International about creating equitable, resilient food systems.
Pierre is the President and CEO of Heifer International, a global network on a mission to end hunger and poverty in a sustainable way by supporting and investing alongside local farmers and their communities.
We chat about the importance of livestock to create change from the ground up. A small investment of livestock, alongside mentorship and support, can help families earn a living income, improve their food security and nutrition, protect their environment, empower women, and continuously train the next generation of leaders.
Their work is incredible and so is this episode.
