New for Fall 2020!

We have just launched a weekly series of free downloadable resources help teachers, parents, grandparents to teach the children in their lives the importance of generous giving, while exploring the ways that Heifer helps end hunger and poverty. The packs come in 2 levels- Elementary (ages 4-10) and Secondary ( age 11) with similar, but age-appropriate activities and content for the whole family to learn together!

The series will wrap up around Thanksgiving, a great time of year to reflect on gratitude and giving.
