In promoting Agriculture to the wider audience especially the youth, Corporate Farmers gave birth to the University Agribusiness Initiative to promote Agriculture across all Higher Institutions within the Thirty Six states of the country. This initiative is to educate via Training, Workshop and Symposium that Agriculture has gone Beyond Farming irrespective of the course of study in the University and its supported by our Technical partner IITA.
Agriculture, we know is one of the major sectors that can create jobs for millions of youths. Hence, the main goal is to ensure that jobs are created for one million Nigerian Youth both student and graduate across the entire Agricultural Value chain who will be trained in any interest of their choice and be connected to players across the entire value chain to become Entrepreneur, Agropreneur and CEO of themselves. This initiative also gives opportunity to students to bring to light their innovations.
Currently, we are working on a project called Connect To Work, which is an initiative of Cellulant in collaboration with MasterCard Foundation. Connect To Work is designed by Cellulant using their Agric technology platform called Agrikore in creating job opportunities for the Youth across the entire Agricultural value chain.
Practically, we have visited over ten (10) campuses across Nigeria and still counting. Clearly, you don’t want your campus to miss out of this great opportunity. To be part kindly register at https://cellulant.com.ng/connect2work/#/register.
