The overall goal of the workshop is to enable youth from southern Borno to increase their knowledge in sustainable crop and fish production practices and develop the entrepreneurial skills in agribusiness to promote self-dependence and to promote the replication of the IYA model.
The objectives of the training workshop are to:

  • Build the capacity of youth to embrace agriculture and agribusiness as income generating activities by training them on the best practices across value chains of appropriate commodities.
  • Develop their entrepreneurial skills in agribusiness to promote self-dependence.
  • Facilitate the replication of the IYA model in Borno State.

These objectives were achieved through lectures, practical demonstrations, plenary discussions, and field excursions. At the end of the training, the trainee participants were provided materials in the form of e-books and removable disks (flash drives) containing the presentations.
