For 5 years now, the laboratory of Zoophysiology of the Ghent University organizes the International Training Programme ‘Beekeeping for Poverty Alleviation’ with the support of the Belgium Government and VLIR-UOS.
From April and July they have again the honor to invite 20 candidates to come to Belgium and follow a four-month intensive training course that addresses all aspects involved in developing beekeeping into a powerful factor of rural development.
This is a great opportunity for Ministries, Universities and local NGOs to have valuable employees trained in the art of Beekeeping, with all the related expenses covered by the scholarship.
Only residents and nationals of a selected group of countries are eligible for this VLIR-UOS scholarship.
In the past years they had none or only a few candidates from the countries below but would like to invite valuable candidates for this course by spreading the added leaflet:
Africa: Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, DR Congo, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
Asia: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Palestinian Administered Areas, Vietnam
Latin America: Bolivia, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Nicaragua, Peru, Surinam.
