Even though it's been a short week at Heifer headquarters due to Labor Day on Monday, it has been a very busy one. This week we have our COO, Steve Denne, along with our Vice President of Central and Eastern Europe, Pietro Turilli, visiting Armenia and then heading to Georgia. 

This week we also celebrated International Literacy Day. As an organization that relies heavily on training and education for the success of our projects we are took part in the observance of the day that calls attention to the 780 million adults who do not know how to read or write.
