Dr Nteranya Sanginga, Director General of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), served on the Editorial Board of this groundbreaking report, which benefited from the lessons learned with pioneering the IITA Youth Agripreneur (IYA) Program.
The report concludes that “The focus should thus be on tapping the dynamism and resourcefulness of youth to establish productive and pro-poor ventures, especially in agriculture, and helping them to create jobs for themselves (and others) within the agriculture value chain. Only by doing this will the potential of a brighter future for Africa be realized.“
This is exactly what Youth Agripreneurship is about. Please explore this website to find out how this can be done!
