The Handing Over ceremony for the Youth in Agriculture – Crop Production Programme was held at the Sir Arthure Lewis Community College (SALCC) Farm in Dennery on Thursday February 1st 2018.
In addition to earning their CVQ’s, 70 Beneficiaries received kits which included: shovels, rakes, pickax, cutlasses, feed, hoses, gloves, seeds, pit moss and several other supplies necessary for the start of their micro farming initiatives. One beneficiary received two goats (male/female) which she will use for breeding and growing her small ruminant farming business.
Presently, one of the beneficiaries work on the farm and SALCC has committed to keeping an additional five (5) more beneficiaries to work on the farm while growing their own crops. A plot of land has also been secured to accommodate the six grandaunts.
Attached are photos from the handing over of the starter kits to the beneficiaries of the Youth in Agriculture – Crop Production Programme with SALCC, which was implemented under the BNTF 7th and 8th Programme.
