Eatbeta primarily relies on volunteers to provide hands-on training to rural farmers in quality crop farming, livestock farming, using farm equipment, business skills, etc. Students from US-based universities or colleges are solicited and encouraged to volunteer in our summer missions. We have previously had students from North Carolina A&T University, and Prairie View A&M University volunteering in Eatbeta’s summer missions in Africa.
We believe that such missions provide important fieldwork opportunities for university students, through which they gain practical experience. More so, student-volunteers may qualify for extra course credit, if approved by a partner or participating US-based university. Eatbeta has formed partnership and collaboration relationships with local universities in Africa to oversee mentorship, supervision, and assessment of student-volunteers from US-based universities, who engage in training rural farmers.
Below are some video clips in which a volunteer student, Rhyne Cureton is training rural farmers during Eatbeta’s summer mission in Uganda. Rhyne is a student at North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro, North Carolina.
