Was the MESA information you received in your home country clear? Was the description of your training site accurate? What more would you have liked MESA to send you before you left you home country?Yes ,Having james sarria helped me a lot with the information from M.E.S.A about the farm and information from my supervisor.
If you worked with a Program Representative in your home country, was he/she helpful? Is there anything more the Representative could have done to help you complete your application or to better understand MESA's program?I reiterate the help of James was very important in my preparation of the program
Any problems with housing, electricity, heat, phone, driver's license, bank account, transportation? Other problems?no problem so far, only the social security that has not yet been obtained due to the issue of the covid 19 that stopped the process.
Describe the training you have received since getting to your placement site. What have you learned so far? Have you attended any special training, workshops, conferences, classes, etc.?the only training we receive on the day is in the field, organization and care of the different areas of the farm.
Have you been involved in an cultural activities since your arrival? (examples : farmers' workshop, library event, soccer games, family activities, etc)activities between members of the farm, barbecue, going to the beach, visiting Lagos the theme of the covid 19 stopped and stopped the other activities that one would have liked to have on the farm.
Any suggestions to improve MESA's program?none, I appreciate the opportunity provided.
