The Heifer Global Village is a collection of authentic model houses from around the world.  Here you will find mud huts, a stilt house, thatch roofs, rain barrels, animal pens, beautiful tapestries, prayer flags, water jugs, hand-painted Mayan tiles, and so much more.  These homes represent impoverished areas around the global where Heifer International has worked to eradicate hunger and poverty through gifts of livestock, education, and caring for the environment. This two-night program includes the Global Gateway simulation as well as a variety of additional programming options that include team building, authentic “labor” practices, a closer look at Heifer’s innovative business model, and our exciting world marketplace.

GEMS students delve deeper into the causes & effects of hunger and poverty, focusing on issues such as health, clean water, nutrition, economic disparity, and lack of education. In this role-playing simulation, participants become “citizens” of a particular house for the evening and must work together to trade for food with the other houses, cook their own meals, and spend the night in the global village.
