NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM.
After the initial technical and business training, and at the member’s request, SUGECO organizes short attachments at local farms. These attachments provide members with practical hands-on experience in selected farming or manufacturing topics.
INTERNATIONAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS.
The international internship programs provide participants with the opportunity to learn technologies, work attitudes, market systems, business management, and networking. Upon returning to Tanzania, SUGECO recruits the intern to train other youth to establish their business enterprises. SUGECO assists successful applicants to meet travel costs (tickets, visas documentation). If you are interested to become a partner please contact:

INTERNSHIPS IN ISRAEL.
In Israel, SUGECO partners with Agrostudies Israel. Graduates from agricultural-related university programs are placed on Israel farms for 11 months. Since 2015, a total of 125 youth have been through the program. 79 farmers have already returned to Tanzania and a further 45 will have returned by September 2019. The participants are exposed to various agribusiness value chain enterprises at poultry, dairy, and horticulture farms and ornamentals gardens.
