And support Heifer
Goodwings is a purpose-driven hotel booking site that makes it easy and free for you and your company to support Heifer when you book hotels. We redirect at least a third of every booking commission to organizations like Heifer, who use it to fund its projects. All at no extra cost to you. You just help us make the world a better place
700 million people live in extreme poverty, mostly in rural areas as subsistence farmers. Heifer works with communities of smallholder farmers to go from hopeless to self-sustaining livelihoods. We drive sustainable agribusiness development and equip farmers with the tools, skills and inputs needed to bring about their own positive changes.
Your support helps i.a. 3200 uneducated poor Ugandan youths to attain the knowledge needed to become ‘agripreneurs’ and make a living in agribusiness. They will be organized in agribusiness-hubs to develop their skills (from growing crops to marketing products). The hubs also help them to access markets and key support services like microfinance.
You support The Global Goals
In 2015, UN leaders adopted a set of 17 goals as part of a new sustainable development agenda, the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The goals all have specific targets to be achieved before 2030, such as eradicating hunger, poverty, and inequality, protecting the environment, and promoting peace. When you support Heifer through Goodwings, you support one or more of the goals. See which ones here below.
