It's great that the International Community is coming out to tackle the challenges faced by rural youth aged 15 and 17, we all understand that the agricultural sector is one of the most important sectors in the development of any country. But here in Africa rural youth face alot of challenges ranging from lack of enough schools, resources used in agricultural activities and lack of proper government policies that can attract them to take up agriculture as real business. A big number of rural youth don't take agriculture as a real business that can help them in uplifting their livelihoods, and because of that, food security is affected and it also affects the development of their communities and that's why we can see a big number of young people migrating from rural areas to urban areas searching out for better opportunities. But if the International Community works together with the government so that they put up agricultural schools, institutions and organisations that can teach them and also encourage them to take up agriculture as real business that can change the way they live and their families thus fighting hunger and poverty. Thank you.
