There are many questions to which many Nigerians seek answers. What do we do about youth unemployment in Nigeria and about our dysfunctional educational system? How do we respond to the rising prices of food and the escalating levels of poverty in one of Africa’s largest food baskets? What market and policy decisions should we be making? What opportunities are available in this fast-changing technological world? How do we reap benefits? Where do we start a dialogue about these issues? Where are those who have risen up to the challenge and have begun planting seeds of optimism? Wherein lies the promise of our much-awaited economic revolution?
In light of these pressing issues, Harambe Nigeria presents to you The Farmland –your number one agricultural information resource. The Farmland has been broken down into different segments to feature:
- Current news from the agricultural world (Agri-News);
- Timely updates on agricultural policy developments (Agri-Policy);
- Informed insights and opinion pieces (Agri-blog);
- Inspiring profiles of aspiring student entrepreneurs (The Sowers), thriving and upcoming entrepreneurs (AgriPreneurs), and hardworking farmers (Get Your Farm On);
- Vast opportunities for investment, capacity building, scholarships, training programs and awards (Agri-Opps);
- Captivating images of the beauty and diversity that are our land (Farmland);
and many more resources.
Through the Farmland, Harambe Nigeria hopes to engage Nigerian youths in discussion about these issues by not only keeping them updated about all things agriculture, but also providing a platform to let their own voices be heard.
Beyond subscribing, there are many other ways to stay connected to and engaged with The Farmland. Through The Farmland, young Nigerians can share pictures, support one another, pose questions to the larger community, share comments, articles and opinion pieces. As students continue to share concerns and insights, they can become writers on the site. As they share information on their work and entrepreneurial prospects, they can become featured as AgriPreneurs or Sowers.
In addition, school authorities, farmers and Nigerians who are in the habit of disseminating positive information can carve a niche on the Agri-Opps section and work to respectively educate, inform, and benefit the larger Nigerian community.
Businesspeople and policy makers can also use the website to share information about policy and market updates and opportunities for investment and capacity building while connecting with farmers, young people and rising entrepreneurs.
Harambe Nigeria also invites Nigerian citizens -especially as consumers- to share, with the general public, their experiences and knowledge as these relate to agriculture, consumption and capacity-building.
The Farmland is about team work and idea exchange as well as open spaces for collective growth and empowerment. Harambe Nigeria invites all Nigerians – youths, farmers, businessmen, school authorities, citizens and policy makers- to join in the bountiful harvest. Our Farmland is always green!
