The Paraguayan Development Foundation invites you to participate in the First International Conference on Financially Self-Sufficient Schools, December 4-6, 2007, in Cerrito, Paraguay.
The conference’s theme, "Integrating Entrepreneurship into Agricultural Education" emphasizes the importance of sustainable rural development and features innovative approaches of educators and social entrepreneurs from around the globe. The conference will be held on the campus of the world’s first “self-sufficient organic farm school” so that participants can see first-hand how this ground-breaking model affords rural youth a viable route out of poverty by providing agricultural and entrepreneurial education.
