Agriculture Training Program for Young

The arrangement that the CTA made to send 40 to 60 young enthusiastic Tibetan boys and girls from agricultural background, to Israel for practical training on agricultural practice. Besides training, the boys and girls also earn a little money from working there, which helps to support their respective family financially. The knowledge and experience obtained throughout the program is passed on to the farmers back in second home.

From 1998-2014, 659 Tibetan students have immensely benefited from the learning by doing program individually on the agricultural technical know-how, lifestyle and overall the improvement of socio-economic condition of the Tibetan community.

In 2014 due to one of the criteria/requirement from Israel Government for the trainees, since, we could not meet the requirement the program was cancelled in the year 2014. As per Arava International Center for Agriculture Training (AICAT), Israel Director, informed that “new regulations from the governmental offices in Israel that allowed us to recruit only students from agricultural universities. The student profile is not qualified and for this reason we have to stop the common project”.
