YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

At the ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION, we agree with the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO 2015 report that Agriculture is the motor for rural development, poverty and hunger reduction in sub-Saharan Africa; and recognize that agriculture offer proven opportunities for people in poor communities to grow food and alleviate poverty.

This informed our mission to package and execute structured agricultural programs that enables young people in our target communities to be trained and equipped to start and run their own farms.

ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION Agriculture programs are all designed to help participating youths from target communities to play key roles in tackling poverty.

We achieve these goals by offering education about farming best practices, assistance with securing farmlands, providing seedlings, assistance with accessing micro-finance support,; and additional structures to enable continued support and empowerment.

Our flagship agricultural project, the Farming Growth Opportunities Initiative (Farm-GO) focus on youths in our target communities, who are interested or already involved in agriculture or activities associated with agriculture. Depending on location, each Farm-GO program aims to achieve the following:
• Train at least 200 youth farmers per community,
• Facilitate the launch of a minimum of 50 youth run farms per community

Our FARM-GO Project will achieve these outcomes through three main components:
1. Knowledge transfer through organized agriculture teaching sessions,
2. Provision of seedlings and relevant farm equipment
3. Facilitating Micro-credit lending.
