The gender strategy of our project addresses the aspirations of young persons, both women and men, to find meaningful employment in agriculture and agribusiness. This is achieved through four stages;
We focus on Inclusive Gender
Stronger orientation toward agricultural careers in secondary schools.
Agribusiness incubation by school leavers within vocational centers and Agribusiness Hubs.
Connecting agribusiness plans to lenders.
Providing business support services to new Agripreneurs.
The project relies upon full participation of women and will implement at least 70% women in its selection of beneficiaries across all partners. A similar proportion of trainers and enterprise managers shall be women who understand the needs of fellow women through peer interactions.
