Nichole Perez, left, and Sarajean Achilles weigh purchase options at the Global Village market while Heifer International volunteer Jacob Sheatsley, left foreground, waits for their decision. Perez and Achilles purchased three eggs, two apples, one orange and flour to make lunch for ten people. Their ninth-grade class from the International School of the Americas in San Antonio, TX traveled to Heifer Ranch outside of Perryville, AR to spend two nights in Heifer’s Global Village. The international development organization provided accommodations and food typical of third world countries. Heifer volunteers led the teens through an educational program designed to create the experience of living in poverty, and to identify ways to help. (image by Alisa Booze Troetschel)
