Farmer-to-Farmer Training in Morocco

Workshop attendees from all F2F implementing organizations
Last month, some of the Partners’ Farmer-to-Farmer staff traveled to Marrakesh, Morocco for a F2F Implementers Workshop. The F2F Program is a worldwide program and USAID funds various non-profit organizations to implement it in different countries and regions. The goal of the workshop was for all the partners to share experiences relating to planning and implementing agricultural volunteer programs and to better understand USAID policies and practices relating to monitoring and evaluation, reporting, and program execution.

The Partners team spent a busy week learning about the history of Farmer-to-Farmer, participating in break-out sessions, brainstorming best practices for our country programs, and getting to know other program staff. We also found some time to sight-see around Marrakesh and even left the city to visit a women’s cooperative and a small family farm.

The workshop was a great experience but we were eager to get back to work and continue fielding volunteers!
