In this photo of the week, Panna Devi tends her shop in her village of Jhareli, India. -------------------------------
Born into an "untouchable" caste, Panna once lived a life without opportunity. When she learned that a women’s empowerment group was starting up in her community, she was eager to take part. “I thought this would be a way out of misery,” she said. Joining the women's group gave her the chance to explore her entrepreneurial spirit, gain skills and earn respect in her community that had been previously denied her. Now, she is a successful shop owner and farmer as well as a community animal health worker. #India #WomensEmpowerment #womenownedbusiness #photooftheweek

Thanks for your support @uzoaduba ! ・・・
I love how cool, calm, and collected I was when the incredible and inspiring Grace Atusimirwe handed me this chicken. Way to do it, Aduba. @heiferinternational #abovetheline

When farming is your livelihood, access to #water can mean the difference between thriving and barely surviving. Mervis Kemphinda of Chinguwa, #Malawi knows this all too well. She said, "As farmers, water is the biggest challenge we face in this community." In this video, she talks about the huge difference a community well could make in the health of her family and her farm.

Today is #WorldWaterDay and we are excited to announce that we have a new generation of Heifer projects that are being designed specifically with water access and water quality in mind. Our work has always focused on hunger, poverty and environmental sustainability, and this focus will not change. It has become increasingly clear, however, that without community access and management of water, Heifer project participants simply cannot achieve their goals. We're working to change that.

Do you know how many people worldwide lack access to safe, readily available water at home? Or, do you know how many miles women in Asia and Africa walk a day for clean water?
Check out this three-question quiz below to see if you can answer some of these important questions before #WorldWaterDay on Thursday, March 22.

We’re thrilled to kick off our Women’s Empowerment Community Leader Series with Asha Daya of @GirlTalkHQ! Click on the link in our profile learn about Asha’s journey from the TV industry to empowering millennials to use their voice! .

"In my country, it's difficult to buy land. It's too expensive. And #Bangladesh is very densely populated, so it's hard to find proper land. When I think, this is my house, I bought it with Heifer's support, I feel proud. Now I'm independent." -Monoara Begum
---------------------
Years ago, Monoara and her husband, Aslam, left their rural lifestyle to find jobs in a nearby town. But Monoara found that there weren't many opportunities for an illiterate woman there. Her husband pedaled a rickshaw every day, but the money he earned wasn't enough to support the family. Shortly after moving back to their rural hometown, Monoara began working with Heifer #Bangladesh . Now the family earns more than double of what they earned in town by raising goats and cattle on land they call their own.
