We believe that students have the potential to be catalysts for transformative change in the Food and Agriculture sector. The AgriKUA Project connects students studying Agricultural related courses to their communities, bridging the knowledge and information gap for women farmers and value chain actors. The Students undergo training using the 4-H Positive Youth Development Toolkit which will address the following:
- Career Readiness
- Agripreneurship Investigation
- Financial Literacy
- Community Engagement
- Knowledge and Information Management using an Online Platform
A majority of university students studying Agricultural Courses in Kenya today are not doing so by choice. The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) places students to courses that unfortunately, they do not deem befitting for them due to the negative perception of Ag-related careers. By providing opportunities for exposure, 4-H, through the AgriKUA project, is enabling students to identify opportunities to align their talents and interests while filling in a real gap of information and extension, especially for rural women.
