Happy International Youth Day!
Young people around the world are key drivers of their economies, and agriculture can offer immense opportunities for them. It pays!
By engaging youth more meaningfully in the sector, from farming to processing to markets, we help them seize these opportunities. This takes a concerted effort, as young people face barriers to fully participating in agriculture-led growth, from laws to social norms and perceptions
to a lack of relevant skills or finance.
Feed the Future is harnessing the creativity and energy of the world’s largest generation of young people by helping them find inroads to markets, create thriving businesses and innovate to improve agriculture and nutrition.
This International Youth Day, check out the stories below to learn more about our work to empower today’s generation of young people to build a more food-secure, nutritious and resilient future for generations to come.
