Technical specialties. Most Tanzanian farmers are disadvantaged at every stage in the process of producing and selling crops. Large areas of soil are nutrient deficient. Rains are erratic. Technology is scarce. Credit is limited. Markets are often out of reach or inefficient. But in spite of these problems, BCF knows that Tanzania can be one of the world’s next breadbaskets. Approximately 80% of Tanzania’s farms are small plots run by rural farmers, and if they are equipped with knowledge of best agricultural practices and with basic inputs such as improved seeds, they are able to maximize yields of diverse crops to feed themselves, their families and their communities. BCA targets rural populations with interventions to improve yields, incomes and nutrition practices to bolster the Country’s ability to feed itself, and its ability to eventually help feed the rest of the world. The Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Service-Learning Program is especially suitable for those interested in agriculture and food security, environmental science, natural resources, ecology, international development, public health or related fields. However, prior agricultural experience is not required, so volunteers from all backgrounds are invited to participate in this program. You must simply have a desire to give something back to the community, and a willingness to work hard and get dirty! The Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Program requires a two-week minimum commitment but can be extended to three months or more.
