The two had previously been students of the Instituto Coração de Estudante (Student’s Heart Institute), a BrazilFoundation grantee in 2003, 2005, 2010 and 2011. Adel’s project trained local goat and sheepherders in modern production techniques, rural management and cooperative business and association management.In addition, they built a mini feedlot to increase productivity.
