Farmer to Farmer Program in East Africa

Building Agricultural Sector Competitiveness in East Africa

NAAE is partnering with Catholic Relief Services (CRS), which is the lead organization, on a Farmer to Farmer (F2F) Program supporting East Africa.

BACKGROUND
CRS is implementing this new five-year program to promote sustainable economic growth, food security and agricultural development in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia and Tanzania.

Volunteer technical assistance from U.S. farmers, educators, agribusinesses, cooperatives, and universities helps developing countries improve productivity, access new markets, and conserve environmental and natural resources.

NAAE Virtual Book Club

ENGAGE>>PERSONALIZE>>GROW

The NAAE Virtual Book Club is designed for agricultural educators to personalize their professional development. NAAE members can participate in the Virtual Book Club and earn up to 5 hours of professional development credit or CEU's.

The NAAE Virtual Book Club seeks to develop agricultural educators in the following ways:

  • Build understanding of students' needs as readers by engaging in reading and reflection
  • Experience professional development as an engaged learner inquiring into and reflecting on teaching and learning goals
  • Engage in deep conversations, layer personal experiences with literacy learning, and probe instructional issues

This summer, the NAAE Virtual Book Club will read The Fundamental 5: The Formula for Quality Instruction by Sean Cain and Mike Laird.
