MESA’s Global Partners are sister NGOs, universities, and cultural exchange programs around the world. Like MESA, they are actively promoting sustainable agriculture and/or cultural exchange in their own region. This network of sister programs is the starting point for the international Stewards who come to the US through the MESA program.
By participating in the MESA program, Global Partners bring additional training opportunities to their constituent communities and diversify the programmatic offerings they offer. They act as MESA representatives in their countries and recruit and interview applicants who would like to come to the US as MESA Stewards. They also support MESA Stewards prior to and after their US program.
MESA is always looking for Global Partners with whom we can collaborate and build upon our existing programs to effectively serve farmers and agrarian leaders around the world.
