The Xi Kappa Omega Chapter, of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, recently partnered with Heifer International for a reading of the children’s book Beatrice’s Goat in Oxnard, California. Beatrice’s Goat is based on Beatrice Biira’s real life story of how her life changed after her family received the gift of a goat from Heifer International.
The children eagerly participated and answered questions asked by story teller, and Heifer volunteer, Kalena Lanuza. Copies of Beatrice’s Goat were given as door prizes, and the children received colorful Heifer buttons and goody bags. This program was sponsored through the sorority’s Global Poverty Initiative.

Dear Heifer International, I'm happy to enclose a check for $200 raised by our first grade students through a cookie sale and family donations! Our students were very enthusiastic in the roles they played to help purchase animals for needy families.Their awareness of the needs of others was heightened and the realization that children can make a difference in our big world was made clear. Thank you for your assistance with our project! Sincerely, Mary Smith, First Grade Teacher
