With 14 million EUR in funding from the  Kingdom of Netherlands, the Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI) has launched the program “Skilling Agri-preneurship ship for Increased Youth Employment” to support youth in agriculture to improve their skills, production capacities, and market access. The four-year project launched this year and will run till 2024.

AVSI is implementing this project in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Agriculture Organization (FAO). AVSI has already trained a number of youth farmers across the country, including 50 from Western Uganda. With this project, AVSI will train and fund at least 16,000 youth farmers in Uganda.

Interested youth farmers are advised to reach out to AVSI offices for more information on how they can benefit from the project.
