Farmers Teach the Next Generation in Mozambique

| Feed the Future

The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Farmer-to-Farmer program is pairing highly-skilled American volunteers with a local vocational school, the Professional Training Center of Siloe. These volunteers have helped the school develop a replicable curriculum that offers students the technical and business education they need to pursue commercial farming, cultivate organic vegetables and raise small animals such as chickens, ducks and rabbits for sale. This bolsters the school’s mission to teach science, entrepreneurship and nutrition to high school students through agriculture, with the aim of helping students find new confidence in the knowledge and skills they need to pursue healthier lives, combat hunger and generate income for themselves and their families.
