Dear Rehmah, i really love this great idea. As a young youth leader, i via so much for such creative approaches that solve the unemployment Paradox in Uganda. Doing a simple study in one of the schools where i mentored over 160 young girls and boys in secondary school, over 90% look at getting a job after their University programs as the Ultimate end goal! But unfortunately, the labour Supply market in Uganda has overtime outgrown the demand! and you are right to say that many of the young people look at agriculture as a punishment in schools!. Take a few a samples of the young people who have ventured into business, it is ultimately the last option in a seemingly hopeless situation like losing parents , dropping out of school, etc. See this: http://edition.cnn.com/2014/01/23/business/paper-bag-empire-andrew-mupuya/

I think the project should indeed nature enterpreneurship skills development at a young age to solve the UNEMPLOYMENT Paradox.
