Agribusiness TV celebrates youth everyday. Through our videos, we feature young agricultural entrepreneurs from Africa, with the aim of making agriculture more attractive to youth and inspire them to get into the sector. Today, as we are celebrating the International Youth Day, we bring forward the inspiring paths and stories of five young entrepreneurs along the agricultural value chain.
The theme of this year’s International Youth Day focuses on the role of youth in Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production. We believe that it is actions that are being taken today on the ground that will make a difference tomorrow in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. And to make that a reality, young people have a crucial role to play.
In the past months, we have been documenting the experiences of young entrepreneurs in the agricultural sector from farm to fork. Here’s what they had to say about their entrepreneurial journey, and how they are working towards achieving food security, eradicating poverty and creating employment opportunities for themselves and for others.
