Agricultural Colleges - South Africa
In South Africa, TSF are very involved with the Rural Agricultural Schools sector in South Africa, where there are over 40 schools that have the vital but failing function if producing Agri based students. Late in Jan 2013, we hosted and facilitated their National Conference, and proposed new approaches, including activating farming and entrepreneurship as functional partners within the system to create revenue for the schools - while also enabling the students to engage in and understand real live business activities while they learn.
This model is based on one we work with in Paraguay background of which can be accessed via the TeachaMantoFish (TaM2F) website. TaM2F is also a partner organisation we support, with an aim to spread the word of sustainability within farm and community schools globally.
