Abstract One of the first international NGOs to enter China after the country’s Reform and Opening, Heifer International uses the donation of livestock and technical training as its entry point for poverty alleviation and community development. After entering China, like a number of other international NGOs, Heifer encountered a number of limitations on its existence and development, however, through clear analysis and definition of environmental differences and institutional constraints, as well as proactive adjustment of its strategies and methods of work, Heifer was able to respond to differences and break through limitations, fight for survival and a space in which to develop, establish positive interactions with local communities and governments, and expand the scope and influence of its operations.
