Thirty-six Ugandan students who left for the 11-months agricultural apprenticeship programme in Israel last year have successfully completed their tour.

Thirty-four are from Makerere University while two are from Busitema University.

This is the first time Uganda has participated in this life-changing internship with great success.

The students who left in October 2013 have studied advanced agricultural techniques and technologies, combining hands on experience with theoretical studies. This has allowed them to gain valuable experience in large-scale modern farming which they are expected to implement upon their return to Uganda.

This international apprenticeship programme exposes students from countries in South East Asia, Africa and South America to Israel and to the most advanced commercial farming techniques on handpicked farms throughout the country.

A total of 1,100 students from 18 countries participated in this year’s programme with 500 students originating from Africa.
