Development Cooperation has evolved by leaps and bounds over the last 25 years. At the beginning of the century the sector was professionalized and a demand for a wide range of profiles to cover various job offers was created. Masters began to be taught on the subject in universities, which created specialists in cooperation; it is necessary to be very educated and have a passion for cooperation in order to dedicate oneself to this profession.

There are also numerous ways to help in non-profit organizations; Many of them require volunteers at headquarters or for occasional trips for a  specific project. These are stays of a few months where one can join the local team to collaborate on specific activities.

Agrónomos Sin Fronteras wishes to open its  doors on September 8 for you to drop by the office [Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Agronómica, Alimentaria y de Biosistemas] in order to get to know the work of our organization and to use us as a  meeting point to share different experiences, books on the sector, articles etc. We will tell you about the work we are carrying out in Tanzania and the different projects we are involved in there to try to help to improve the quality of life of the country’s farmers.
