Heifer University Lead Volunteer Training March 4-7, 2010

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Saturday, March 20, 2010
Three Sacramento Heifer volunteers attended training at Hidden Villa in Los Altos Hills, California. The three volunteers from the Sacramento region joined twenty three other volunteers from California and other western states.

There were presentations from Heifer staff on various projects around the world, including the United States. One of the highlights of the training was a presentation on Heifer community planning and the 12 cornerstones by Tererai Trent, formally of Zimbabwe. Tererai, who is featured in the book Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, was an inspiration to everyone.

The volunteers developed program goals which will be shared with other volunteers in their regions.

Girl Scout World Thinking Day

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Saturday, March 20, 2010

Seven Sacramento area volunteers traveled to Fresno for Girl Scout World Thinking Day on Feb. 27 at the Fresno Convention Center. The theme was "Working together, Girls Scouts can help end hunger and poverty" and Heifer was the featured charity. We had a large booth with a great variety of activities and resources for both the girl scouts and the adults. The girls were enthusiastic and interested visitors to our booth. Many waited in line to spin the spinner to win a variety of prizes.
