Starting in August, the Schorlemer Foundation of the German Farmers' Association is offering specialists and students from the fields of agriculture, horticulture and viticulture, as well as related agricultural areas, a unique opportunity to expand their skills in an international environment. During an internship abroad in Uganda as part of the “International Young Farmers Exchange Programme” (IYFEP), participants will work and live on a local host farm for three months. The application period ends on March 31.

The internship abroad in Uganda allows participants to immerse themselves in a diverse environment and learn about agriculture in different climatic and economic conditions. Through hands-on experience on Ugandan farms, you will gain valuable insights into local farming techniques, agricultural processes, and global challenges.

Daniel Ess, a former participant, remembers the internship with joy: “The stay in Uganda was a special experience for me. “I gained professional knowledge about tropical agriculture and a new perspective on the importance of agriculture in general.”

Gerald Dohme, DBV, highlights the importance of international internships: “Internships abroad are a valuable measure to expand your specialist knowledge and strengthen your own personality. Through international experiences, participants can not only strengthen their professional skills, but also develop intercultural skills, which are increasingly important in a globalized world of work.”

The participants are assisted by the project managers of the Schorlemer Foundation and prepared for the exchange through seminars. Intensive support from the Ugandan partner organization (UNYFA) is also ensured during the internship.

The program is financially supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Anyone interested is invited to contact the project director, Johannes Leberer,, +49 030 – 31904 312.
