Eighteen Humphrey Fellows who are studying at UC Davis for the summer were treated to a tour of Huei Young’s Asian garden on Saturday evening.

The Humphrey Program brings accomplished mid-career professionals from designated countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Eurasia to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate study and related professional experience.

President Jimmy Carter instituted the Humphrey Fellowship Program in 1978 to honor Hubert Humphrey, the late senator and vice president, a longtime advocate of international cooperation and understanding. UC Davis Extension has hosted the Humphrey Fellows for the past 18 summers for their pre-academic orientation and training.

This year, the International English and Professional Programs at UC Davis Extension is hosting two groups of Humphrey Fellows — a 12-week group from mid-May to Aug. 1 and an eight-week group from mid-June to Aug. 8.

The Fellows at Saturday’s event are from the first group; they hail from 15 countries: Mauritania, Kosovo, Brazil, China, Algeria, Haiti, Ukraine, Burma/Myanmar, Pakistan, Vietnam, Indonesia, D.R. Congo, Afghanistan, Congo-Brazzaville and Mongolia. They will offer presentations at a Humphrey Fellowship Global Forum from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, in the Community Room at International House, 10 College Park.

Fifteen additional Humphrey Fellows will speak at a second Global Forum at I-House on Wednesday, Aug. 6, from 1 to 5 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.

Young’s garden, a blend of Asian styles, is an oasis in her North Davis neighborhood. It has been featured on “Good Day Sacramento” and HGTV, and is toured by hundreds of people every year for a variety of charitable causes.

Young is hosting one of the Humphrey Fellows this summer.
