Tanzanian high school students request agricultural training from IITA
“The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.” This quote from Carl R. Rogers gives meaning to the request presented to IITA–CGIAR by Kibaha Boys High School students during the farmers’ field day held recently in Kibaha.
The students requested to be taught about cassava production following proper agronomy practices and digital tools like AKILIMO. They made this request after visiting the IITA booth to learn about the Institute’s activities and technologies during the field day organized annually by the Tanzania Research Institute (TARI) at Kibaha center. The objective was to bring together agricultural stakeholders, including farmers, extension officers, researchers, and other stakeholders, to share knowledge and expertise related to agricultural activities.
