Program Description

Using established partner relationships, students will work with international partners to address identified challenges to learn the principles of extension methodology and sustainable community development by integrating their discipline knowledge and technical skills from previous courses. Students will also learn the intercultural communication, market analysis, project design and planning, business planning and business ventures, and cultural factors affecting community food security while they work in bi-national teams.  Some key objectives are to strengthen learning, literacy, and life skills of Peruvian and Purdue students through mutually beneficial engagement to improve lives and livelihoods.
