[Apply Now] Enterprise for Youth in Agriculture (EYiA) Project for Young Nigerians

EYiA (Enterprise for Youth in Agriculture) Project is an opportunity to train unemployed youths and women in vegetable production (Olericulture) using technology. Through our partnership with Mastercard Foundation, we’re proud to be part of the solution to youth unemployment in Africa.

The technologies to be deployed include:

– Greenhouse farming – this is a climate-smart growing method that gives the growers control over biotic and abiotic factors.
– Soilless farming (hydroponics) – a growing method that does not depend on soil, it allows the grower to grow year-round regardless of the season
– ML & AI tools – These will be used in monitoring the irrigation of the plants as well as proper nutrient combination for the plants
– Integrated Pest Management – A combination of physical and biological control will be used throughout the project to ensure proper pest management.
