Meet Samantha Canning
Position: Animal Nutrition Training Specialist
International Partner: SEND Ghana
Placement dates: May -August 2018 / January - May 2019
Samantha worked in Tamale (northern Ghana) with SEND Ghana as an Animal Nutrition Training Specialist. Enjoying her time, Sam is worked with local farmers in rural communities to lead educational outreach sessions on vital topics such as feed management, animal nutrition, and animal comfort. Through each field trip, she says she gains something as an individual, not only in terms of animal nutrition practice but personally as well. Her goal is to help families become more successful by diversifying animal and crop production, thereby increasing household profits and capacity. Sam has returned to Ghana to do another 4-month placement, and we are very happy to have her back as a returning volunteer!
