Welcome to our new field officers in the DR!

Partners is pleased to welcome José Almodóvar and Rafael Marte as our two new field officers for the Farmer-to-Farmer program in the Dominican Republic! Our field officers in Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic play a key role in the Farmer-to-Farmer program. They typically have strong backgrounds in agronomy, environmental science, business development, or rural development and are also bilingual, allowing them to easily translate during highly technical assignments.

They also provide regular follow-up to our host organizations to make sure that the knowledge shared by volunteers is properly understood, being applied, and successfully replicated. This allows them to cultivate strong relationships within the communities we work in as well as contributes to the sustainability of the Farmer-to-Farmer program.
