F2F Overview Video

Take a moment to watch this short video about the global Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program! Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), F2F promotes sustainable economic growth, food security, and agricultural development worldwide. Partners of the Americas currently implements F2F in Latin America and the Caribbean, working primarily in Nicaragua, Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic. Through the program, U.S. agricultural volunteers share their knowledge on an individual basis to help increase farm production and farmer incomes while preserving the natural resource base. U.S. volunteers participating in F2F spend two to four weeks on assignment working directly with local counterparts in Latin America and the Caribbean to address previously identified local needs. Technical assistance is focused on agricultural commodity chains, from field to market, addressing bottlenecks wherever they are identified. This video provides a great overview of the work F2F does around the world. Enjoy!
