There Are Camels in Arkansas

Heifer International offers global education
experiences at its Learning Center at
Heifer Ranch,
located in Perryville, Arkansas (45 miles Northwest of Little
Rock). Each program introduces participants to the idea that one person
can make a difference in ending hunger and poverty.

Programs range from daily tours to multi-night
programs that are ideal for individuals that
want to learn more about the issues surrounding hunger a
nd poverty, Heifer’s
sustainable solutions and what they can do to help.

On Friday, I accompanied a Benton elementary school’s fifth
grade to the Heifer Ranch.  It was
a beautiful fall day with colors of orange, red and yellow covering the
trees.  We started out with a
hayride around the property where we spied gardens, water buffalo, sheep, cows,
goats, and even a couple of camels
