About the Training;

According to the
2017 World Food Prize laureate, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, the ”future of African
youth lies in agriculture.”  This future
can be realized by making agriculture both profitable and “cool” for
young people. Adesina also argues for the need to move the perception of
agriculture from a way of life for millions of rural people to a business.
Figures by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics indicate that Uganda is one of the
countries in the world with the youngest population.

Over 70 percent of
the country’s population of 40 million people is below 30 years of age. Youth
unemployment stands at about 70 percent, and about 400,000 youths are released
annually from universities into the job market to compete for approximately
10,000 available jobs and the likelihood of one getting a job is 1 out of 10.

 

We are here to
change this narrative through; a tailored 3 months of training aimed at equipping
participants with skills in agribusiness entrepreneurship using design
thinking. From the training, participants will come up with innovative business
ideas that address challenges in the agricultural sector.
