Youth Empowerment Program driving Sustainable Agriculture (YEPSA) and RIGO!

The Youth Empowerment Program driving Sustainable Agriculture(YEPSA) event recently held its maiden event in Abuja. The program was masterminded by VIRCO- Velox Integrated Rice Company and RIGO- Rising Generation Organization.

YEPSA project seeks to empower young people by involving them in the process of driving sustainable agriculture in Nigeria. YEPSA aims to drive a shift in the mentality of young people from weather based farming (rainy season farming) to year-round farming.

 

YEPSA makes year-round farming possible among young people by providing irrigated farms at schools. This enables youngsters to see first hand the possibilities of year-round farming; a technique Nigeria must fully embrace to drive sustainable agriculture.

YEPSA welcomes sponsorship from other organisations and will be pleased to have various organizations help the YEPSA project achieve their full potential in Agriculture and Agri-business as we  tour other schools to encourage other youths in Agriculture.
