Promoting youth and agriculture
We are actively investing agriculture, the backbone of India's economy. Since 2019, in cooperation with the local NGO Partners in Prosperity, we have been organising several practical trainings for young people aged 15 to 35, with a focus on regenerative agriculture and the renewal of the flatland economy. We promote a circular economic model of production and consumption and encourage the reduction, reuse and recycling of as many materials as possible. In three years' time, we want to encourage 2170 young people (with special attention to women) to retrain as skilled entrepreneurs. They learn vocational skills, such as innovative techniques for growing organic rice, and discover methods of adding value to improve their income. They also develop their marketing skills, financial competences and entrepreneurial qualities through intensive training. In addition, they can count on thorough guidance and we facilitate exchanges between peers.
