|Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. We empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but our approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. 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.|
|The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is the nation's first to offer a Master of Public Service (MPS) degree. Located in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas, the Clinton School differs from more traditional graduate programs because a significant portion of the academic program is community engagement work. Over the course of two years, students perform three major field service projects: team based, international and individual. In 2018 the Clinton School will launch an on-line Executive Master of Public Service Degree designed for practicing professionals.|
|For more than 40 years, the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation has worked to make a difference by helping to build and sustain the organizations that serve and strengthen Arkansas. Through grantmaking and strategic partnerships, WRF is working even harder to help close the economic and educational gaps that leave too many Arkansas families in persistent poverty. Working together, the needle can and must move from poverty to prosperity for all Arkansans.|
