Q&A: International Ag Certificate Student's Internship in Ecuador
How did you find out about the International Agricultural Certificate program and why did it interest you?
I was looking through the bulletin and stumbled on the information for the International Agricultural Certificate. I realized I already had met a lot of the requirements for the program and also had taken Dr. Maria Navarro's International Agriculture Development course, which piqued my interest in the role agriculture plays in sustainability, political rights and women’s rights all over the world.
Exciting New CAES Study Abroad Opportunity:
Digital Storytelling in Eastern Europe with Heifer International
Take advantage of your chance to spend 2-weeks immersing yourself in a rural Romanian community documenting the impact of Heifer International projects on your host family.
Heifer International is a global nonprofit that works to eradicate poverty and hunger through sustainable value-based holistic community development. Heifer distributes animals and agricultural training to families, providing them with food and a source of income.
During the program, you will experience the daily activities of your host family and document their perspectives on dairy farming and bee-keeping through video, photography and written narratives.
The completed digital storytelling project will be formally presented to Heifer International staff for use in information and promotional materials for their projects.
The program also includes visits to Bran Castle (“Dracula’s castle”) and Sighisoara (a medieval city in the Transylvania region).
Sign up today! The May 2016 trip has been selected to receive grant funding which will reduce the program cost to only $850 (plus airfare).
