Andrea commented on Work & Learn - City and Village Exchange program

NDEF Cameroon Yes! Thank you for your ideas! In Tanzania, they would plant one tree for each student, and when the student graduates, they sell the lumber from the grown tree and give it to the student!

I think it could also benefit if they grow their own food while being a part of this program! It would help them become sustainable!

Rishab Khanna Thank you! Those are great ideas! I definitely think learning in groups would build community as well!

Hello chris null 

I envision someone on the ground, I would have to know exactly how each system works in each country, but working with individuals to find out their family needs, as well as relocation abilities before starting. Now that I'm thinking, maybe there are easier ways to teach "skills" through boxes or simple training in each of their areas that they can travel and sell on their own! I'll keep thinking!
