As Project AgGrad approaches its 40th anniversary, the ministry has released a video in which past students reflect on what they learned through their participation in the program, look back on their time in Minnesota, and share how they are using their knowledge to make a difference in their home countries.
Project AgGrad is a mission program of the Minnesota Conference that addresses the root causes of hunger in developing countries. It selects promising students from those countries and supports them as they pursue an advanced degree in agriculture production; upon completion of their degree, the students return home to share what they’ve learned and help their nation’s farmers feed more people in a sustainable way.
Project AgGrad funds the students’ fellowship expenses through gifts from local churches and individuals. This ministry has supported eight students since its inception, and the video below (which can be downloaded here) highlights how these donations are changing lives and the world.
Congregations are welcome to use or share all or part of the video as they see fit.
