Agriculture is the future. Agriculture is the hope for food security. Agriculture is a business with the potential to contribute to sustainable livelihood and rural development among the pro-poor and disadvantaged group of young people in rural communities. However, many young people today run away from this goldmine. This blog is therefore a personal project dedicated and committed to helping youths venture into agriculture for development by sharing views and ideas about the potentials and the opportunities that agriculture presents to the youths of today, especially in Africa. The blog will also share information on research, competitions, awards, fellowships that young people in agriculture are eligible to participate. It will also feature views from young people in agriculture, which will serve as a motivation to other young people who still have wrong notion about agriculture.
The objective of this blog is to simply secure future farmers in Africa by sharing information on opportunities that agriculture presents to young people.
