I also occupy a post as the board member of Nkambe-Ako small farmers federation. I was born in a poor family and peasant agriculture was what my parent do practiced. I grew up in the farm and did agriculture not because i loved agriculture but because that was the only source of livelihood. Today I have a passion for agriculture and love agriculture. I will not fold my arms to see youth roaming around and crying for jobs when there are better opportunities for agriculture. I am an advocate for agriculture. Youth wether they like it or not being the backborn of the today's society shall get into agriculture conciously or unconciously and i will not wait for youth to get into agriculture unconciously. This is the reason why i joint this platform and others to advocate for youth and encourage agriculture which i love so much and to share with youth and the old opportunities and advantages in agriculture.
