The Beer-Sheba Project combines a sustainable agro-forestry program together with wholistic training and an agricultural resource center for young Senegalese farmers.
Recently fourteen young farmers arrived from the surrounding rural communities to participate in the Intern Development Program. Each intern is assigned a certain segment for a 3-4 month period. The expertise they gain in the areas of forestry management, livestock husbandry, cropping and literacy training, (all within a Christian worldview), will equip them as they expand and later apply their knowledge at the village level. At the end of their year of training, the top achievers will be provided with some start-up assistance so they can head back to their village with the capital resources they need to start their own profitable farming venture.
These interns are now living on the Project in temporary housing and will be directly involved in all aspects of operations.
