The Fresh Brains Development Initiative/Alexijan Consults yesterday completed the training of 46 youths on climate smart agriculture.
The CEO/Founder of the initiative Nkiruka Nnamaego stated this in her opening remarks at the closing ceremony of the BootCamp under the Youth Farm Project II, with the theme “Building a climate Resilient Generation.”

According to her, the Youth Farm Project is the brainchild and trademark of Fresh and Young Brains Development Initiative and Alexijan Consults, which adopts a two-pronged approach to promote youth –led climate smart farms and agribusinesses as well as highlight the benefits of farming for sustainable youth development and livelihoods.
Speaking on the project, she said, “’On April 2, 2014, we started the Youth Farm Project, because we saw the huge potentials young people have in agriculture, yet as at that time, many people were complaining over youth unemployment, and restiveness.
“So with the support of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, OSIWA, OXFAM Nigeria and other organisations, we launched the Youth Farm Project and set a target for ourselves that between 2014-2020, we should be able to establish and promote at least 10,000 youth led climate smart agribusinesses across Africa.”
