FANRPAN Celebrates International Youth Day

12 August each year is a day dedicated to celebrating efforts of the world’s youth in enhancing global society.  It is a day meant to promote ways to engage Youth in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.

This year FANRPAN is celebrating International Youth Day by showcasing exciting agriculture initiatives spearheaded by the youth. The FANRPAN website and Facebook page will be used to profile young people who are involved in the agriculture sector. Please share with us profiles of your projects, short video clips, songs, pictures and anything else that can showcase youth in agriculture.  We would love to receive short blogs that we can run throughout the month as we continue with the celebrations.

On the 12th of August will run a one hour forum on Facebook discussing the Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) where all your questions on CAADP will be answered. Also join the conversation on twitter @fanrpan using the hashtag #YouthDay2013. Spread the word!

One lucky contributor will receive sponsorship to participate and address delegates at the upcoming FANRPAN High Level Regional Food Security Policy Dialogue to be held in Maseru, Lesotho on 2 to 5 September under the theme “Climate Smart Agriculture”. Entries close on the 13th of August 2013.
