Beatrice Biira

Growing up in Kisinga Village in Western Uganda, Beatrice Biira overcame amazing odds to earn an education thanks to Heifer International’s world renowned program. When she was 9-years-old, Biira’s family received the gift of a goat from Heifer and used the profits from selling goat milk to put Birra through school. She is a student in the 2010 class of the Clinton School and is a worldwide inspiration. Her story is now the subject of the bestselling children’s book, “Beatrice’s Goat.”
