The secretary general of the USAC, Doctor Carlos Enrique Carney, made a speech regarding the excellent work that the Farmer-to-Farmer Program in Guatemala has been making towards the development of the agricultural sector through technical assistance.
The University of San Carlos is committed to training professionals of high academic standards so that they can replicate their knowledge with the underprivileged of the country. The commitment is given under the slogan "Go and teach all". The Farmer to Farmer program partners with Save the Children and the University of San Carlos to form human capital at a professional level. This creates experts who are available to replicate their knowledge and techniques in rural areas to reduce chronic and acute malnutrition in food insecure families.

Knox says he feels privileged to transfer technology in artificial insemination in goats and "goat project is the most successful in the world" given the commitment and execution by the members of the technical and professional staff in Guatemala.
