Who We Are?
We’re a collaborative Youth agricultural training and employment program designed to enhance youth capacity in agricultural technology and entrepreneurship, work ethics and effective teamwork.
Farming offers the young generation a chance to make a difference by growing enough food to feed the world.
We are the chance to make a difference!
We run an integrated program in agriculture that plans, delivers and evaluates agriculture-based extension services and applied research contributing to Nigeria’s food security in a sustainable manner. We offer a high quality program in sustainable agriculture to produce graduates with current and relevant skills and competencies as farmers, agro-business entrepreneurs, technicians, or professionals in agro-industry.
The primary goal at this stage is the production of graduates and employment, with competencies and skills in agriculture suitable for agro-business entrepreneurship, and/or technical and professional vocation in agro-industry.
To achieve this, the development priorities which address Relevance, Quality, and Sustainability are:
A farm as a business and as a living laboratory for training such individuals. Infrastructure for students to reside on campus and participate in the living laboratory.
Specialized training, extension, and research services as additional business opportunities for income generation (Relevance).
The infrastructure necessary for quality delivery and accreditation, namely laboratories, a library, and an administrative centre (Quality).
Agrotourism as an additional income generating source towards greater financial independence (Sustainability). These are all achievable goals with investments and renewed commitments.
