We invite agricultural college students from developing countries all over the world to Israel for a one year internship, an experience of a lifetime. Our program involves learning by doing, acquiring practical hands on experience alongside theoretical studies, using the most cutting edge agricultural technologies available in a wide variety of fields.
More than a sign of continued cooperation between the countries (which it is), these visits by local representatives from their homes are like a message from home. It reminds them that they are doing something that is bigger than themselves and that will benefit many. They are reminded that by working and studying hard they are making meaningful progress, for their entire nation. They are reminded that they are bringing pride to their motherlands.
