My International Youth Conference on Agriculture and Entrepreneurship experiences!

Nigerian Participants with the CEO of iHAV Foundation: Christabel Ofori

It was my first time out of Nigeria to join other youths across Africa in a very important topic: Agriculture and entrepreneurship! It was the iHAV Foundation conference held on the 24th – 27th July, 2013 at Africana Guest House Accra, Ghana involving youths between the ages of 18 – 28 years coming together to listen to and interact on ways to improve the way Agriculture should be taken as a viable business in the continent.

Participants from Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda came together and were grouped to create Social entreprises that will improve Agriculture as a sustainable business in Africa.

The conference was indeed an eye opener for me as I got to interact first hand with a lot of people from different Nationalities across Africa, learning from their culture, tribe, weather conditions and food 🙂

More details of the conference will be highlighted in future blogposts, however one thing we should know is this fact: If African youths practice Agriculture as a business with proper research and planning, they will create more jobs and attract the support of the government and other stake holders!
