Farmstay offers an opportunity for students to enjoy the countryside and experience farm life. The Farmstay Programme gives international students the opportunity to do this, and to get a “natural” Canadian experience.
With this Farmstay programme, students are placed for a 2 to 4 week period on a farm in the wilderness of BC, Alberta, Ontario or Quebec. There, they live with a family and assist in the day-to-day up-keep of a family farm. Students get to see the great outdoors, get up close and personal with animals, and try Canadian food, fresh out of the ground.
Farmstay gives students an added opportunity to practice their English or French in a real social context.
Vegetable / Fruit Farm: Small farms specialising in mixed vegetables or fruit, includes orchards.
Arts/Crafts/Artisanal Food Processing: Farms specialising in production of small craft foods or craft products like certain types of jam, or specialized lamb, or heirloom vegetables.
Mixed Farms (animals and produce): These are typical “family” farms that students would be used to seeing on TV programmes and movies. They include a small collection of animals, and a medium sized patch of crops.
Upon confirmation of completion, students will receive a letter stating they volunteered at a particular location.

A generally overlooked group of individuals, Ibn Al Sabeel (Wayfarers/ Refugees) is one of the named channels of zakat expenditure and one of Misr El-Kheir key programmes. We use part of our profit from this package to sponsor the programme to help in providing funding to 5000 Egyptian and expatriate students every year to cover their living expenses and tuition fees, as well as provide aid to refugees living in Egypt.
