Transforming Animal Health Transforms Lives
Vincent, one of our Senior Sales Representatives in the U.S. traveled to Zambia as part of a corporate social responsibility initiative in 2016, witnessing first-hand the life-changing impact livestock had on families.
In his time there, he helped families who were new to the Heifer International® charity build pens in preparation for their animals, and prepare the day's only meal of chibwabwa. He also worked with families in Kalulushi, Zambia, who had received goats four years earlier. They had more food to eat, could afford school tuition for their young children, and were optimistic about their future.
"I now have a better sense of my personal 'why.' I realize that my professional work with Elanco is a small but important part of all our efforts to produce enough food for the 10 billion people expected to be living on the planet by 2050."
Over the past 10 years, Elanco and Heifer International have worked together to break the cycle of hunger in 160,000 families across the world. Our employees have played a key role in this.
