Internship Program

Kilimo Timilifu (KT) just graduated the second set of intern families that were here this past year.  We were able to improve our program some for the second year.  We are looking forward to making more improvements to our program this third year as we also start to normalize some things.

The program follows the planting cycle, starting in November an ending in September.  Interns learn dryland farming, vegetable farming and chicken growing, small business management, tailoring, batik making, soap making and various other entrepreneurial idea.

We hope that by 2022 the program will be self-sufficient or nearly so.  Until then we are seeking funding. We are committed to have two interns families in our program this term.  KT is trying to raise $350 USD monthly per intern family, or $3,850 USD for the year for one intern family.

As of November-2020 we are 80% funded for two families.  We are trusting God for the remainder of these funds and the operational budget as the internship program can not exist without all the normal operations.

This includes:

  • Housing costs for intern families while at KT
    • A rented home in the local village
  • Modular teachers for various courses
    • Travel, lodging, materials, stipend.
  • Training materials (books, workbooks, materials, etc.)
  • Stipend for interns until productivity is sustainable
  • Departing gift for startup after the internship program
