Here’s a recent newsletter segment from the CIEE Service-Learning Program in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Our fellow Thai farmer, Mike Aguilar, is facilitating and organizing with study abroad students and farmers in the Dominican Republic. Mike worked together with the AAN to promote fair trade rice, organic agriculture, student activism and solidarity with peoples’ movements in northeast Thailand. Thanks to the CIEE students for their contribution. Farmers and eaters from diverse parts of the world can only gain from exchanging information and experiences.
