The first activity of Heifer Project International (Thailand) started in 1974, focused on marginalized ethnic minorities living in the mountainous regions of northern Thailand. The first project, providing cattle to families in 21 villages, was conducted with one of these groups. Later fish ponds and other activities were added. The Heifer Thailand office was officially established in September 1986 for the management of Heifer Thailand program.

The objective of most international assistance programs is to achieve “sustainable” development, i.e., implementing quality of life improvements which do not disappear when to donor agency withdraws. Many Heifer Thailand programs, because of the concept of passing on the gift, have achieved that goal in admirable fashion. For example, although Heifer Thailand’s project with Thailand Lahu Baptist Convention (TLBC) officially ended ten years ago, villagers in former project areas stilled reported to be “passing on the gift” without any active Heifer Thailand intervention.
