    Hi Emmanuel – Thanks for sharing. The reality show sounds like a great idea! You may be interested in an initiative linked in my post: YPARD (http://www.ypard.net/).

    Am heni from nigeria, am a graduate of accounting and an upcoming dog breeder.apart from the unemployment here, don't wish to enter into their modern slavery. So I got a dealership am running now but don't really see the future in it and not far from slavery too.I wanted to go into poultry but I think it may be too stressful,too expensive and risks of birds death also my dad said he prefers catfish pond. I will like to try out something first then later I can expand, I like cattle and pineapple too but maybe someday later. What to expect? I think that for agriculture it is best to start with less risk and safe benefits.

    Yes agriculture is the DEAL.
    Many youth are now looking at this direction especially in Ghana and Africa where fertile lands are found almost everywhere. What I think needs to be done also is that institutions must offer support to educative and entertainment programs that seek to highlights or showcases Agric or farming in a positive outlook. I have a similar TV reality show on farming here in Ghana and looking for institutions to partner to make this happen. Any suggestions? Thanks. Emmanuel Ansah-Amprofi, Africa Youth Network, Ghana

    Here in Uganda we are encouraging the formal schools to integrate Agriculture within all the curriculum areas. I would love to get links to some resources on this.
    To faciliate this we have initiated activities like the school farm camp and you can find out more about our work: Gayaza hosts a school farm camp

    its a welcomed development... we as youths are being neglected about issues that governs the worlld in its entity.. but with this development, I positively think that the world will be in a better shape. Needed in this is to create more awareness to other regions about it.. thank you.
