Ebenezer Training Centre, Mozambique
Founded in 2007, Ebenezer Agricultural Training Centre, Nampula, Mozambique equips students between the ages of 17 and 25 years old with business, agricultural and life skills. The students live on campus for two years and take part in practical training courses where they learn to grow crops, raise chickens and produce eggs. The development process offers students an opportunity to gain expertise while earning an income by caring for a small plot of land and tending to an egg operation.
The IEF is providing financial and technical support to Ebenezer Agricultural Centre, establishing practical egg production training courses. Ebenezer agricultural / leadership centre is part of the Communities of Fusion group which also includes an academic school (Rapale International School).
Successful graduates from the egg programme at Ebenezer Centre receive a capital grant equal to half of the profit they generated on their egg production during their course and will also be well placed to take advantage of commercial contract production opportunities offered through Eggs for Africa and Mozambique Fresh Eggs.
