USAID Press Release Honoring FTF Volunteers

Dr. Thomas Evans (seated, center) and Dr. Myriam Kaplan-Pasternak (seated, far right) join other Farmer to Farmer volunteers and USAID representatives in being honored by USAID. Two other volunteers photographed, Jason Licamele (far left) and Terrill Christensen (standing, 5th from right), have also traveled with Partners' FTF Program.
The US Agency for International Development has issued a press release announcing the Farmer to Farmer volunteers who were recently honored in Washington, DC, for their voluntary service abroad. As described in an earlier blog post, two of Partners of the Americas' volunteers were selected for their exemplary service and dedication to assisting farmers and farm organizations in developing countries. Congratulations to Dr. Myriam Kaplan-Pasternak and Dr. Thomas Evans, who were both presented with Presidential Volunteer Service Awards, as well as the hundreds of individuals who volunteer their time and skills abroad through Partners of the Americas' Farmer to Farmer Program!
