EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

Youths supporembrace agriculture as a profitable venture program is aimed at fighting food insecurity, rampant youth unemployment, idleness and criminal activities among other myriads of challenges. Youth have energy and potential to replace the illiterates and mostly aged farmers. These can be realized through training on agribusiness and climate-smart farming techniques.The training program involves series of workshops targeted and draws youth participants(40 each) from across eight rural villages.Iam humbly appealing to welwishers and support agencies for funding support/generous contributions to make this endeavour a success.For more information kindly, get in touch via my email;alihuqaroba@yahoo.com or call +254728691878.

WHO BENEFITS?

The direct beneficiaries of training program are the educated but unemployed rural youth to engage in agribusiness for employment and income generation, while the spillover indirectly benefit the wider villagers through improved food supply.
