FUNDING: Orskov Foundation Grants form Students & Communities
The Orskov Foundation offers grants to support individual students and community projects related to agricultural education:
The Orskov Foundation promotes sustainable development for the poorest rural communities in the world. We aim to achieve this through the integration of agricultural education with community projects. The resultant sharing of knowledge, experience and information will be key factors to enable people and communities to find their own solutions to the complex problems they face and move towards self-sufficiency on their own terms. We support both individual students and a programme of community projects. Each of the community projects we fund is set up using a revolving-fund. This is a simple method of providing access to affordable credit to buy what the communities deem to be most useful. When they are able they then pay back to the fund to enable others to benefit. Each project, its goals and management, is set up in partnership with the active participation of the community groups involved.
