Edward Tetteh, age 30, from Accra, Ghana indicated that his objective in attendingNIVS is to "take home modern methods and technology in farming to improve the primitive conditions of his countrymen." Edward's parents and brothers and sisters are engaged in farming. Edward received his education in Presbyterian mission schools, ten years, Methodist Mission High School, five years, and two years of business training. He has taken part-time Bible courses the past eight years learning how to teach and preach, and has been active in the Baptist Church in Accra teaching Sunday School and part- time preaching. His work experience Includes five years with the West African Examinations Council, a civil service program where he was in charge of the ordering, issuing, accounting for and correcting the examination materials. In the Farm Operation Program Edward will be attending classes four hours per days, four days per week, with the remaining time to be coop on a farm or agricultural occupation. The Farm Operations program is two years in length. Several area farmers have volunteered to employ him for a period of time. However, he still needs good Christian farm managers to employ him. For a variety of experiences he needs work on a grain farm for three to six months, on a hog raising farm, a cattle feeding farm, a dairy farm and perhaps a poultry farm. Edward has paid his own expenses to date. However, there have been a number of persons interested in assisting with the costs of his education. Financial assistance and farm employment experiences are being arranged by the Student Services Division, Northwest Iowa Vocational School. Sp/4 Kenneth W. Van Gorp 481-60-6694 Co.
