Empower 175 students for food security in Kenya

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

We are excited for the gift of another year and we hope that you have all started the year well in good health and more energy. We take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous new year 2020. Our youth polytechnics students have been on long December holiday and they are now back to school for a new semester. Most of the students graduated from the training centers and they are waiting for their results as the institutions are busy enrolling new students. We have been encouraging youths to join these vocational training centers so that they can gain technical skills that will help them self-reliant by creating their own jobs and being employers. Good examples are our agribusiness club members who have graduated and they are busy in utilizing skill gained on agribusiness. Most of them are already into the business even as they wait for the results. The weather has been very favourable thus enabling them to implement various agribusiness activities and especially modern farming techniques where they have been growing crops and selling them at good prices especially during festive seasons when the demand for most products was very high. Since it is still raining in most parts of the country, they are producing more products so that they can sell to various schools, institutions and local retailers as it is usually very dry in January. They are taking advantage of the rains and demand is still very high. We are encouraging them to continue with the same spirit and focus on expanding their farms for more produce and profits. Some of them are also offering trainings to the communities and institutions at a fee again increasing their income. Our discussion on previous report was on water harvesting structures and we hope the parents will participate in making this initiative realizable as they promised last year. The semester is very new and the schools management will guide us and the parents on the way forward on this issue. We are planning to engage graduated students in facilitating trainings on agribusiness to the new students who are joining various institution and are ready to join the club. This will be planned in due course with the teachers, new students and facilitators who will be the already graduated club members and of course the other club members who have now gained a lot of skills. We thank you all those who have made this project successful as we welcome them and others to continue supporting our young youths.
