Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Winrock’s Agriculture & Volunteer Programs team is thankful for so many things this year:

  • 160 volunteers donated more than 29,000 hours of their time and $248,200 in additional resources for international assignments in 2017 (so far). These volunteers trained and assisted more than 10,500 people and 147 host organizations in 11 countries!
  • 117 agriculture education and training institutions have introduced more than 140 new or improved trainings, degree programs, and services to equip and inspire the next generation of agriculturalists.
  • As a result of volunteer assistance, hosts have leveraged an additional $3 million in resources from other sources.

We are constantly amazed by the dedication, ingenuity, and generosity of our volunteers, and by the resilience and perseverance of our host organizations.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers, field staff, host organizations, and partners, for all that you do!
