Heifer Nepal was estimated to have met 53.4 percent of the needs within the communities we visited. Overall, Heifer is consistently making important contributions to reducing poverty and improving living conditions in Nepal. More than 9 out of 10 of the 94 families interviewed (91.5%) indicated that they had increased their income as a direct result of their participation in the projects. An important feature of the Heifer Nepal is that projects target women, which has contributed greatly to improvements in gender equity.
