On Wednesday, June 11, The Beatrice Biira of Uganda, from Beatrice’s Goat came to visit Twin Parks Montessori Schools to accept the donations our schools made to Heifer International. At the age of nine, Beatrice achieved her childhood dream of attending school thanks to a goat, a gift from Heifer International.

Our students are very familiar with Beatrice’s true story. They read her book in preparation for choosing an animal they wanted to give to a family. Philanthropy, shared as a family tradition, is the gift of a lifetime for young children.

Beatrice gifted a signed copy of her book to the schools
