Re: Youth Employment in Agriculture as a Solid Solution to ending Hunger and Poverty in Africa

Valens Ntawiha

1) After ending my study in 2014 ,I was trained in Israel in vegetables and fruits production, and after coming in my country Rwanda I started to work on myself where i grow bitter melon and passion fruits .and I help farmers in banana production in my village.

I was motivated by: 

  • my willing because that i like agriculture (no farmer ….no life)                                           
  • facilities provided by my government (fertilizers, tools for irrigation ,etc)

2) My major achievement is mainly based on growing new crop in my country (bitter melon) where I was searching  the market myself .

My innovation is that I use bamboos and metallic wires for staking as I will show you in photos.

3) If I will have opportunity I will ask on youth employment and Entrepreneurship where I will ask experts ….on how should we change mind of some youths ignoring to be engaged in agriculture sector?
