Volunteer Technical Assistance for Food Security: The Farmer-to-Farmer Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer Program provides short term technical assistance to farmers, farm groups, and agribusinesses in developing countries. Volunteers are American farmers, ag educators, and agribusiness professionals who want to use their skills to improve global food security. Upon their return to the United States, the volunteers educate their fellow citizens on the importance of US development assistance.

Attend this side event, hosted by CNFA in partnership with USAID, Weidemann Associates, Partners of the Americas, NCBA/CLUSA, Winrock, ACDI/VOCA, and FAMU, to learn how your business or project might benefit by receiving or providing volunteers - or how you might personally volunteer. USAID administers the Farmer-to-Farmer program, which is funded under Food for Peace within the US Farm Bill. It is implemented by PVOs, NGOs and universities.
