Farm & Crunch
Inspire young people into agriculture as a career path through other young people and develop a community of leading youth farmers that exchange knowledge and lessons learnt which contribute to innovative solutions to global climate crisis.
The challenges on urbanisation from young people in Uganda have resulted in the loss of the valuable agricultural knowledge and skills, contributing to food security risks and limited employment opportunities in the agricultural sector.
