A life-changing experience with I-Youth – Series 1
The Innovative Youth in Agriculture (I-Youth) project has completed year 1 activities across various project components in Kaduna, Kano, and Lagos states. IITA is implementing the I-Youth project in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, cutting across six components: agricultural orientation, agribusiness internships, technical internships, young farmers’ cohort, Start Them Early Program (STEP), and e-commerce.
The beneficiaries of the project already have tales to tell. These stories will be presented in a series to highlight the project’s impact on beneficiaries across the six components within the next few weeks.
Oluwaseun Evelyn Areo is one of the project’s beneficiaries under the agribusiness internship component in Lagos State. The agribusiness interns expressed an interest in the entrepreneurship track, where they were coached on establishing agribusiness enterprises along chosen value chains.
