Agribusiness

The agricultural sector is the backbone of Kenya’s economy and the means of livelihood for most of our rural population. Sustained agricultural growth is critical to uplifting the living standards of our people in rural areas, cub rural urban migration as well as generating rapid economic growth. The purpose of the program is to deliver knowledge, skills and smart technology applications in small-scale farming techniques to the youth while empowering them into capital intensive agribusiness and to enable them make more informed choices in agriculture for improved and sustainable livelihoods. The program is intended to help empower the youth in sharing modern practical skills, knowledge on small-scale farming to help the youth enhance their farming capacities and transform the whole process into commercial ventures.

In addition to this, the youth have a poor perception towards agriculture. They view it as a practice for the old, retired and jobless people who do not qualify for white collar jobs. This is so despite the high unemployment rate among the youth. Farming is a very uncertain and unpredictable venture. Small-scale farmers are always one bad season away from disaster. This is a risk that our youths are not ready to take up. For the youth…”the risk is real”. Ngao Society will facilitate equipping the young people with the right agribusiness knowledge, tools and technology applications that will make farming more certain, predictable and secure.
