KARUCO AG TAG - 2013
a trip by Jan B. Hansen
From: January 22nd 2013
Until: February 3rd 2013
KARUCO AG TAG will follow Jan, Daniel, Pedro and Jay - 4 curriculum and program development specialists, as they make their way through Tanzania- getting to know farmers, Ag business owners, youth and families in Karagwe. You are invited to tag along. C'mon!
The purpose of this trip January 22 - February 3, 2013, is to develop curriculum and the entrapreneurial program in Agri-business for KARUCO- Karagwe University College. Educate Tanzania, Inc (ETI) has been working for just over two years with our partners in Tanzania as they build a university. KARUCO will be a hub and a way to help keep their educated youth in the community, and to stem early marriage (average age 18). Grant funds from the Oswald Family Foundation and the Mortenson Family Foundation made it possible to bring two professors from the College of Ag at the University of Minnesota, the provost from EARTH University in Cost Rica, and me from ETI, to be on site in Karagwe to co-create curriculum in Agriculture. Exciting times ahead!
