  2. 2. Message from Country DirectorDear friends, partners and colleagues,To achieve success in this changing world, organizations must learn, adjust and grow to become moreeffective and efficient. Heifer China keeps doing this every day, like any mature organization does. Aswe look ahead to another promising fiscal year, its important for us to look back at what weveachieved in the past fiscal year and recollect our mission to support families in need.In last fiscal years annual report, I wrote about the achievements we had made to accomplish ourmission. The work continues this fiscal year as the China program helped 5,982 families and nearly80,000 people received necessary trainings from Heifer. We believe that "helping communities helpthemselves" must be central to our strategies on behalf of vulnerable families. As the Values-BasedHolistic Community Development (VBHCD) model evolves, in this fiscal year we integrate theprinciple of scale-up program impact which was newly developed by Heifer Senior Management Teamearlier this year into our project design and implementation. Vertically, we propel project participantsto reach second-level development by promoting various trainings pertinent to the development ofvalue chains and values-based cooperatives.This fiscal year, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Heifer China and published a picture-book as areal-project snapshot of Heifer program villages and a tool for local people to witness and understandour work. Although the recovery from the global recession is fluctuating, it is encouraging to see thatpublic concerns regarding poverty alleviation and charity issues are gaining prominence as well. Itoffered us an opportunity to start in-country fundraising. With support from Heifer HQ and HeiferHong Kong, we established the Shanghai Haihui Community Livelihood Development Center as aresource mobilization office to promote fundraising and brand-building. At the same time, bycollaborating with Heifer Hong Kong and Heifer HQ, we made our first strategic plan on resourcemobilization for the upcoming three years. We also received study tours from Heifer USA and HongKong. Weve also received significant donations from channels outside of Heifer HQ and Heifer HongKong.I am very proud of the progress made with the collaborative efforts of our partners, our staff and theproject participants. I truly want to acknowledge and congratulate all of you for your dedication overthe past fiscal year. It is gratifying for me and our entire Heifer China team to see that we uphold thesame values and principles that Heifers founder Mr. Dan West believed in when he founded thisorganization.Chen TaiyongCountry DirectorHeifer International China Program 1
