We at Agrogana Farms are certified by Fair Trade. Our main project that’s driven by the Fair Trade funds is the English classes for our employees’ children. These classes are held Monday through Thursday twice daily. There are more than 150 children and youth enrolled in ages from 4 to 16 and our program has 4 highly qualified teachers. Classes are guided by a textbook but also with special didactic material that allows a greater learning for our students.

Annually we conduct an open house in which all students demonstrate what they have learned to their family and friends.
