IFF Africa

Training initiators for change

Lome Togo / Africa

IFF Africa wants to be a "revealer of talents" for the service of a more humane world: commitment to offer services through training in order to lead each trained person to be an actor and vector of development in the society. The objective is the training of young people and adults to implement a professional project that makes sense, at the service of society in order to become agricultural entrepreneurs.

The context

The issue of poverty is recurrent in most African countries. One of the defining features of this poverty is youth unemployment and underemployment; This youth is the spearhead for the development of this continent. Out of schools and universities with their degree, and in the hope of socio-professional integration, young people often face difficulties. Unemployed therefore, they see their lives threatened by lack of survival resources, and cannot therefore meet their basic needs and find themselves in a situation of poverty or put themselves on the road to immigration.

Faced with these challenges, the challenge is to promote agricultural entrepreneurship through the revaluation, in the various environments, of agricultural trades and the improvement of farming techniques to give hope to young people. This involves access to training, land and credit.

It is in this context that the "Agricultural Entrepreneurship" training program is set. It is about producing a critical mass of men and women, equipped with moral, technical and organizational capacities; a new body of human resources, transformed and endowed with a new entrepreneurial culture.
