Skilling in agripreneurship for increased youth employment
Poultry Value Chain Agribusiness Training
Youth Agribusiness skilling training kicked off on 13th September at Cielo Ecofarm. A total of 20 youth, the majority being women are undergoing training in various aspects of the poultry value chain including identifying opportunities beyond farm level production. They will also receive the coveted Department of Industrial Training (DIT) certification on completion of the course. The training is taking place courtesy of AVSI Foundation and Cielo Country Inn Projects Ltd. The former is providing financial and technical support while the latter has provided farm infrastructure, management support and facilities for the training. It is expected that training in other value chains such as Honey, Dairy etc. will follow in due course.
