Learning About Each Other

For a second year, NuWay Cooperative, through the Worldwide Farmers Exchange, is employing interns from the Eastern European nation of Ukraine.

“This program gives Ukrainians interested in agriculture an opportunity to learn about our culture and farming practices,” says Anne Bedford, NuWay Cooperative’s human resources director. “Likewise, we get an opportunity to learn about theirs.”

“Here in the rural Midwest, we don’t deal with many other cultures,” she continues. “These internships broaden our understanding of what is happening in the world.”

The four Ukrainian interns meet a need for additional help at a critical time of the year. “From April through December, we have their assistance in serving our customers,” says Anne, noting that each intern works a variety of jobs from the Welcome Operations Center.

According to Anne, it has been interesting to the cooperative’s customers and employees to learn the aspirations of the young men from Ukraine.
