Recently, #SamuelCommunitiesProfile, featured Kevin Garrison, Project Coordinator at CAID Industries, Inc, and his work with Heifer International an organization that is dedicated to helping communities achieve living incomes, which will allow families to have access to resources such as proper housing, food, water, and other essential resources. They work to end poverty in partnership with the communities they serve and offer programs that support entrepreneurs around the world.
Kevin (pictured), who spent a year working and volunteering for this organization after graduating college, tells us why this foundation is so important to him.
“At the farm, we would teach hundreds of kids a week about sustainable farming, livestock, and cooking,” he says. “Teaching a kid who has only lived in a city how to milk a goat, can really change how they view the world! Even though I am no longer working at Heifer, I love telling people about the organization. I really believe in the work they do. The more people that know about the organization, the more people they can help.”
