White Plains, New York – On November 9, 2013, Pi Iota Omega of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. will have the honor of presenting Heifer International with a monetary donation to aid underprivileged families in Kenya. WiLD mainly provides people with dairy cattle, camels, goats and bees, and focus on implementing small dairy farming projects with communities and women’s groups. Heifer recipients are trained in animal well-being, agro ecology, gender equity and community development. This program includes more than providing livestock and training for families; its components include education and economic security for women and allow families to build a better standard of living so they can rise out of poverty. With various fundraisers over the past couple of years, PIO has raised enough money to purchase a camel for a family in Kenya. Pi Iota Omega’s partnership with Heifer International is a significant milestone in our service to the global community. The alliance is consistent with PIO’s mission and vision to eliminate world hunger and poverty. Heifer International is a nonprofit, humanitarian organization dedicated to ending hunger and poverty and caring for the Earth. Heifer currently provides livestock, trees, seeds and training in environmentally sound agriculture to families in more than 30 countries, including the United States.
