An internship with Fundación Paraguaya offers an unique opportunity to gain professional experience in financially self-sustainable agriculture school and spend time living and working in Paraguay!
Our Self-sustainable Schools Program is an educational model that undertakes a different path in the struggle to eliminate poverty. We provide academic, vocational, and entrepreneurial secondary education to the sons and daughters of poor farmers so that they can become their own “rural entrepreneurs”.
The program uses the “Learn by Doing, Selling, and Earning” methodology, in other words, the curriculum is based on theory classes complemented by hands on field practice. And since the students run and operate the school as part of their business skills education, the school is financially self‐sufficient, requiring no additional funding from the government or donor funds. This innovative educational model is therefore based on entrepreneurship and can be replicated all over the world.
