Heart of the project

The struggle against rural exodus of the young people

The Ivory Coast faces a worrying increase of poverty and young people, who often don’t have access to education, are the most affected and tempted by rural exodus. It is urgent to train the Ivorian farmers to promote the re-establishment of the agriculture and to improve their productivity, their income and their food security so that they are capable of adapting to the new agricultural realities.

A school to prepare to an agricultural job

It is with this perspective that SEED Foundation is supporting a project aimed at developing a network of Domestic Agricultural Schools in the Ivory Coast. These centers offer young people aged between 13 and 20 years old to follow an ‘on-the-job’ professional agricultural programme for 3 years. These recurrent trainings are organized to improve the process already adopted by the farmers. SEED Foundation has chosen to work specifically with the development of the Domestic Agricultural School in Assinzé (15 miles south of Yamoussoukro).
The aim of the project is to reinforce the capacities of the Ivorian agriculture by providing professional training at the Domestic Agricultural Schools.

Main actions

Training

Reinforce the Domestic Agricultural School to educate, train and lead young people into employment by renovating and improving the equipment available; training the trainers at the Domestic Agricultural School, monitoring students, providing educational tools, etc.; providing condensed technical training for existing farmers.

Governance

Help the Federal Associations and the structure in charge of accompanying it to strengthen their abilities especially by designating a team in charge of providing technical and educational expertise for the Domestic Agricultural Schools; creating, updating and distributing educational, technical and organizational materials to schools.

Au début, on me disait que l'EFA était l'école de ceux qui ne connaissent rien à l'école. Aujourd'hui, ce n'est pas vrai car j'ai des camarades qui ont continué leurs études après l'EFA jusqu'au bac.
