FAO’s Junior Farmer Field and Life Schools give children a voice

FAO’s Junior Farmer Field and Life Schools give children a voice

Jan 2014

Junior Farmer Field and Life Schools (JFFLS) are a simple methodology for teaching vulnerable children and young people about farming, entrepreneurial skills and how to take care of themselves.

These schools follow a “living classroom” approach in which the students or children out of school observe the crops throughout the growing season in Uganda.
