The Aprovecho Institute has several positions open in its internship programme, and is seeking strongly motivated individuals who demonstrate a commitment to apply learned skills in a Third World setting.
The internship will begin with a month of intensive introductory study into the world firewood crisis, theories of combustion, heat transfer, food transformation in cooking, and fireless cookery, as well as a treatment of working in developing cultures. The remaining 5 months will involve more self-motivated learning including weekly seminars by our staff, daily consultation with specialists, hands-on stove construction projects, and opportunities for individual research and publishing. Instructors will include Ianto Evans and Michael Boutette (co-authors of 'LORENA STOVES').
Instruction will be at the Aprovecho Rural Centre near Cottage Grove, Oregon. Accommodation is available. Interns are encouraged to arrive up to two weeks early to arrange housing and acquaint themselves with the community.
The internship fee is US$ 1, 900 for six months including tuition and residence. In cases where the fee presents a real hardship, Aprovecho can advise on scholarship sources. IF INTERESTED, please write to Aprovecho giving details of yourself and your plans.
